Forum Post: Journalists revolt against Obama-Romney censorship

On Monday The New York Times finally broke the silence and openly admitted that the Obama campaign grants interviews "under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name."

According to the same article, Romney advisors do practically the same. The Times reveals that the presumptive Republican nominee’s camp requires that "reporters ask them for the green light on anything from a conversation that they would like to include in an article." Journalists who refuse to follow these rules lose their sources.

The Obamney campaigns thought the new "Goebbels veto rollout" was already in effect. That new facist "free press" starts next week, not this week.

Nothing to see here. Nothing to see here PEOPLE!. Go home.

Could you ask the Obama camp why they continue to allow Reid and Pelosi as to act as spokesmen for the party? They're not only an embarrassment to the party but to people of intelligence everywhere: Green light, yes or no?

If I had that kind of power I'd also tell off John Boehner and Tim Geitner

and an entire list of people that would flood this wall. lol

The D's and R's have one big issue in common.... terrible representatives.

Yea I know... they place idiots on high, broadcast their every public appearance world wide, and then wonder why we're perceived of as insane simpletons. It's embarrassing.
