When the University of Connecticut Lady Huskies the NCAA women basketball champions visited the White House, it was unlike anything that has happened before. President Barrack Obama took them White House basketball court for a little shoot around. The White House press corps was not allowed to attend. This of course is not a big deal as who would want to find out the President is uncoordinated or what if Fox News gets a hold of video of the President throwing a brick. The issue is what transpired after and if this is going to be a new push in the future. White House officials decided to do their own media report on the visit, complete with a reporter, sharp editing cuts, interviews, and even a chyron with the name of the person interviewed. This get all tied together with even a little White House logo on the left of who is speaking. Is anyone else thinking what we are thinking, how far away are we from, this being the new normal, as the only media feed. Can anyone say Communism? We know it is Saturday and we are stretching it here but if this was President Bush, the ACLU would have been involved. It is troubling to think that we could have a Whitehouse only giving us one side of the story through there own eyes.
