White House Bribes Press Corps

Communications Corruption at the White House

What I have learned after discussions over the last several days with several journalists who either have regular access to the White House or are part of the White House press corps is that there is a growing sense that access is traded for positive stories — or perhaps worse, an agreement that things learned will not be reported in the near term.

The White House is working hard to secure deals that yield fluffy, feel good commentary about the Obama White House. One American White House reporter used colorful terms to describe the arrangement. The reporter said, “They want ‘blow jobs’ first [in the press sense]. Then you have to be on good behavior for a bit or be willing to deal, and then you get access.”
“Axe” and “Gibbs” know who needs access to get their books pushed forward.
They know who will pay for play — and are taking notes on who has been naughty and nice in their reporting.

Happy Easter!

This is yet another example of the Chicago Way being wielded by this administration. Bribery being committed by this administration seems to be the norm and not the exception, unfortunately.

This is not surprising. I would take what they "need first" both literally & figuratively.

These liars make me want to puke.

Hi Ladies, Happy Easter to you too. No, I'm not surprised either. Just making sure they know we're watching.

Haven't you heard of > The Scroll and Key?
A college secret society. Like the Skull and Bones.
Although sounds like just another student club-secret or not.
A branch of the main tree-secret in kind.
These Scroll and Key, join the Media industry, and do what the name implies; they lock up the news and report just what they want the Population to here.
It's nothing new. Been around since the 1800's.

@TheySay... Dude, sorry if I didn't hit the mark with my attempt at humor. Sarcasm is only one of the many services we offer. :)

Sorry if I intruded, I was just stating the facts. Not to many know all the little avenues where this stuff comes from.
I spent 15yrs finding what is going on, and from some what, from the sources from the inside, I have to let it be known to as many as possible.
I like your style.
Like I said sorry for intruding.

Not at all TSWS, If we can't have fun poking the politicians then why bother? I'm all about spreading the info. Thanks for sharing. I only wanted you to know I was being sarcastic in the first post. Cheers!
