Barack Obama seeks filter-free news

At a time when his Washington honeymoon is turning into a hazing, President Barack Obama and his team are launched on a strategy to sail above the traditional White House press corps by reaching out to liberal commentators, local reporters and ethnic media.

The highest-profile moments in the new approach have been well-noted, such as the president giving an interview to progressive radio host Ed Schultz and Obama calling on a reporter from the liberal-leaning Huffington Post at his first news conference.

I don’t see where this is anything new as he has been seeking out the liberal left media all thu his campaign and has gave conservative news very little time!

  1. This is interesting. If Obama pisses off the MSM, it may dawn on them that they can still save their jobs by actually reporting on the president, instead of running interference for a clear ingrate.
