Transparency

I remember Barack Obama saying that his administration would be the most transparent in history. Upon which he immediately closed the White House to press more than any other previous president. Why is there no uproar about this? Because the press is complicit: they are liberal themselves. They wouldn't dream of expressing their displeasure with a Democrat in office, because it might hurt his chances at reelection.

It has now been seven weeks since Obama has taken a question from the press corps. During that time the press made an uproar about Romney being "closed to the press" in his foreign tour, which is in fact a lie (see the link above). But the press ignores Obama's refusal to take questions. Bias, people. Don't take them at face value. Don't believe them at all unless it's backed up by conservative sources. It's a war of propaganda, not absolute truth. And they are anything but transparent when it comes to Barack Obama. Just like the man himself.
