Obama isn’t happy with the way that the media reports on his failing economic and social policies.
At a discussion at Georgetown University on Tuesday, the President scolded the media for showing the unemployed demanding phones and other entitlements:
“I don’t know where they find them. They’re like, I don’t want to work, I just want a free Obama phone”
The media finds people to interview in actual America, not the one the President wants to pretend exists. The entitled want their Obama phones, EBT card money and everything else the left has been telling them that they should expect.
The President continued his rant against accurate reporting by calling for an outright change to how the media reports:
“We’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues..”
How, exactly, does Obama plan to change how the media reports on these issues? Net neutrality gave the government more control over the internet and we are already dealing with the least transparent administration in history. Anything more obtrusive by the government and we’re looking at censorship – that pesky first amendment should at least slow him down.
If his idea of changing how the media reports means only telling the stories he finds palatable or in a manner that he approves, well .. that sounds a lot like N. Korea’s way of changing the body politic.
