WH Bars Press From Press Award Event

From the Andrew Malcolm’s blog at the (increasingly candid) Los Angeles Times:

Obama White House bars press from press award ceremony

Andrew Malcolm

We are not making this up:

Barack Obama was elected commander in chief promising to run the most transparent presidential administration in American history.

This achievement and the overall promise of his historic administration caused the National Newspaper Publishers Assn. to name him "Newsmaker of the Year."

The president is to receive the award from the federation of black community newspapers in a White House ceremony this afternoon.

The Obama White House has closed the press award ceremony to the press.

From the president’s official schedule: 

"Later in the afternoon, the President and the First Lady will attend a reception with the National Newspaper Publisher Association in the State Dining Room, where they will be presented the Newsmaker of the Year award. This event is closed press [sic]."

Maybe they’ll let the newspaper people pass the award through the fence.

Maybe bankruptcy is freeing the Los Angele Times from their previous strait-jacket of following the Democrat line.

Still, imagine if this had been done by the Bush White House.

(Thanks to Jrmcdonald for the heads up.)
