From Breitbart:

Robert Gibbs was responding to a reporter who asked what the White House thought about the recent closure of several US newspapers and a threat to shut down the venerable Boston Globe.

“Obviously (President Barack Obama) believes there has to be a strong free press,” the spokesman said. “I think there’s a certain concern and a certain sadness when you see cities losing their newspapers or regions of the country losing their newspapers.”

Yeah, that ‘media bailout’ depicted on Ugly Betty seems ever dumber now and we didn’t know that was possible.
