Drudge is linking a story today about how the White House shut the Boston Herald's White House correspondent out of the pool covering the President's fundraiser in Boston today. This seems to be retaliation for a front-page editorial the Herald gave Mitt Romney on the day in March that Obama visited Boston. Here's the White House spokesman's complaint:
My point about the op-ed was not that you ran it but that it was the full front page, which excluded any coverage of the visit of a sitting US President to Boston. I think that raises a fair question about whether the paper is unbiased in its coverage of the President’s visits,
Obama was upset that his March visit didn't get more coverage?
Okay, then, I'll provide some more coverage:
Obama came to Boston in March to rub elbows with wealthy businessmen -- whose businesses have benefitted from his policies. For the pleasure of face time with the President, these businessmen contributed to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, anywhere from a few hundred dollars to more than $30,000.
Here are some of those people whom Obama hit up for cash on that visit, many of whom will cut huge checks to Obama's reelect and the DNC this week:
I hope this coverage of what a sitting president did in Boston pleases the White House.
