Obama’s Revenge: New Yorker Reporter Banned From Press Plane For Overseas Trip

So Ryan Lizza who wrote (no drawing) a 15,000 word flattering piece on Barack Obama is now banned? Really? Is that how it works?

Sklar takes it up a notch:

Or maybe, like Ari Fleischer once warned, they would just like people to watch what they say.

Yeah, we’re sure it’s just like that. It’s just like being in shock, two weeks after 9/11 and the White House Press Secretary says something creepy to Bill Maher for saying something flippant. Same exact deal. The simile couldn’t be more similar.

Is Rachel Sklar the new Geraldo Rivera?
