The President and the Press

Jun 4, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.newyorker.com

Why journalists deserve better protections.

In 1969, when nothing excited the public's interest like the depredations of drug fiends, the Louisville Courier-Journal sent a reporter named Paul Branzburg to penetrate Kentucky's marijuana underground.

He published eyewitness accounts; a photograph accompanying one of them showed hands hovering over a pile of hashish. A grand jury ordered him to identify the dealers he had met. He refused. Branzburg v. Hayes landed at the Supreme Court three years later.

It is time to stop the Obama regime madness and his IRS army of henchmen that converted America to the new Mozlem Brother style dictatorship of Morsi of Egypt using lies, deceit and liberal cowards and traitors that hate America and seek its destruction from within the White House and the IRS. Will the American people continue to go like silent lambs to the slaughter house and destruction of their country by liberal and Mozlem brother agenda of the Obama regime which know no limits of corruption and betrayal of the American people? Will the American people stand up to the Obama regime that destroy the American constitution using Maoist czars and America hating IRS managers that use horror tactics to destroy the American patriotic conservatives?

LOL!!!!!!!!!

I find this comical. I really do.

The media is F'ing dumb. The media in general supported the NDAA. Flag carrying it as a protection from a guy in cave over 10k miles away.

What I find comical is that the NDAA allowed the government to do exactly what they did. It allows the government to arrest and watch any citizen they "suspect" is a terrorist. No proof, they can just do it.

So those journalist in the media have a source. Unbeknownst to them, that source is a so called "suspected" terrorist. The government can then do what they want when they want because that journalist is speaking to someone the government has "suspected" as a terrorist.

So the NDAA is now biting the media in the ass.

Sometimes you get what you ask for.

F'ing idiots.

The love affair with Obama is over. The IRS and AP discrimination by this black president has turned the tables on him. He's no good.
I know.
You know it.
And now the press finally knows it.
They should have been the first to know but they were derelict in their duties.

When you have a lying cheating POS as President this kind off crap is expected. That's what happens when you have a black, racist, muslim, Chicago lawyer in charge.
3 more years of nothing but king Obama. And king obama will do everything in his power to leave America in total disarray.
I hope one day he will be charged with crimes against America and sent to prison where he belongs with the rest of the Illinois Governors.
I know that their is a long list of politicians that deserve prison terms too.
But dumass Americans will do nothing but keep on voting these a-holes back in office. king Obama will keep on lying to Americans and they love it. Too bad they are to STUPID to see this and deserve everything they get from king Obama.

You reveal much about your tortured sexual frustration. Go for it! Go get naked at the train station mens room. Someone might pity you.
