I had forgotten all about President Obama’s White House giving polygraphs to staffers and spying on the media, to stop staffers from leaking to the media. And in James Rosen’s case, his parents too.
What reminded me was Obama’s nose-in-the-air diatribe in Illinois the other day, about how President Trump calls out Fake News. See the difference between calling them out, and, using the intelligence apparatus of the country to prosecute the ‘free press?’ But the Carnival Barker would have you believe that Trump calling out ‘Fake News’ as Fake News is abusive of the Office of the President.
In Obama’s case, weaponizing the government to target political opponents is nothing new. Mainstream media just doesn’t cover news harmful to the political Left.
