Led by the Society of Professional Journalists, 38 of the most prominent journalism groups in the country made a legitimate and official gripe about the Obama Administration. Ironically, the gripe was about news–or the lack thereof.
They called it “politically driven suppression of the news.”
The report was authored by Leonard Downie, Jr., formerly the executive editor of the Washington Post, and titled ”The Obama Administration and the Press.” It accuses the president of coming into office with the promise of transparency but asserts that he has “fallen short of his promise.”
The report also compares Obama to Nixon and the Watergate scandal. Yes, that really happened.
