AP’s Sally Buzbee Outlines 8 Ways the Obama Administration Blocks Coverage

ap_logoThe Associated Press’ Erin Madigan White highlights ways the Obama administration actively blocks information from the media, as outlined by AP Washington bureau chief Sally Buzbee.

From the administration’s air strikes on ISIS to Guantanamo Bay, Buzbee recently outlined eight ways the administration prevents media from covering current events at a meeting with the American Society of News Editors.

A few examples:

1) As the United States ramps up its fight against Islamic militants, the public can’t see any of it. News organizations can’t shoot photos or video of bombers as they take off — there are no embeds. In fact, the administration won’t even say what country the S. bombers fly from.

5) Day-to-day intimidation of sources is chilling. AP’s transportation reporter’s sources say that if they are caught talking to her, they will be fired. Even if they just give her facts, about safety, for example. Government press officials say their orders are to squelch anything controversial or that makes the administration look bad.

NYTimes’ Trip Gabriel to Political Team, Jennifer Steinhauer Named Mid-Atlantic Bureau Chief

New-York-Times-LogoThe New York Times’ Washington bureau chief and political editor Carolyn Ryan and national editor Alison Mitchell announced to staff today that national correspondent for the Mid-Atlantic region Trip Gabriel will join the outlet’s political team and that Jennifer Steinhauer has been promoted to Mid-Atlantic bureau chief.

“What Trip loves, more than anything, is politics. And he writes about it beautifully, from Eric Cantor’s collapse to Governor McDonnell’s family bribery scandal,” wrote Ryan and Mitchell in an email to staff. “That’s why we are delighted that Trip is joining the political team, which was his home during the 2012 presidential cycle and will be again for 2016. We will turn to Trip as the race for the White House gets underway.”

Steinhauer has covered Congress for the Times for the past four years, and prior to that served as its Los Angeles bureau chief.

This week, FishbowlDC presents the latest issue of National Journal and its exploration of “The Battle for Your Brain.”
