Obama Campaign Censors and Bans ANOTHER TV Station

with 7 comments

UPDATE: What is Obama going to do? His Vice presidential candidate can’t even get through one interview without getting flustered. Will Obama ban all legitimate hardball questions? Censor television stations and newspapers? Can we say Communist tactics real quietly? Obama’s been learning a lot from his friend Hugo Chavez on shutting down the media. Here we have another Biden failed television interview. Not with FOX News but a Philly CBS affiliate. What was Joe Biden’s response?

“Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Slow down here, old buddy!”

I bet these daring co-anchors Chris May and Angela Russell are unemployed by the end of the month. No wonder Obama hasn’t granted an interview in weeks.

Don’t you know the Pennsylvanian liberals are frothing at the mouth over such arrogance from a local tv station?

ABC Affiliate News Reporter Blows Biden Away

ABC’s affiliate Orlando, Florida television station, WFTV-Channel 9 star reporter Barbara West literally took Joe Biden’s breath away during an interview on Friday. Using her five minute interview time allotment, West bombarded “Open Mouth-Insert Foot” Biden with question after question regarding Obama’s policies on socialism and Marxist statements, and his ‘spread the wealth’ remarks. Biden was so shocked by the non-softball Hannity-esque questions coming from an ABC network station that he asked increduously “I don’t know who’s writing your questions?” He couldn’t believe that anybody would have the nerve to ask him straight questions on the real issues.

What was the star reporter’s reward? Obama’s campaign cancelled the next interview with Jill Biden next week. The WFTV station has been told they will get no more chances to ask “real questions.” How dare they question Biden that way? Orlando Sentinel Entertainment columnist Hal Boedeker fills in the details:

Biden so disliked West’s line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate’s wife.

“This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was “a result of her husband’s experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West.”

The gorgeous reporter responded to Biden’s scorn:

“I have a great deal of respect for him. I have a great deal of respect for Sen. Obama. We are given four minutes of a satellite window for these interviews. Four precious minutes. I got right down to it and, yes, I think I asked him some pointed questions. These are questions that are rolling about right now and questions that need to be asked. I don’t think I was rude or inconsiderate to him. I think I was probing and maybe tough. I can’t believe that in all of his years in politics, and all of his campaigning and such, that he hasn’t run into some tough questions before. He’s certainly up to it in giving good answers.”

Way to go Barbara! I don’t know what your politics are, but I appreciate you asking the real questions. ‘Softball’ Joe Biden should have just answered them appropriately and moved on. He should have said thank you for allowing him to promote Obama’s campaign. How ungrateful of the Obama campaign!

Channel 9: I’ll be turning in from now to see what’s going on in the morning news. I don’t care if Channel 35 is the Fox network affiliate. I’m tired of Channel 35’s horrible reporting of local news. The 6am – 8am reporters are just brutal. The weatherman is hot but not hot enough for me to keep watching. I’ll give Channel 9 a try.

  4. Thanks for those delightful interview segments that depict Biden caught unprepared!! I applaud Channel 3 News Crew, and I only regret that had you not posted them, I (as many others) would not have seen them. We so need something big to shake things up before Nov 4.

  5. I voted today, in Youngstown, Ohio…they had early voting here, well well, as I left my car to go to the entrance of the building, I was approached by many, and I will say groups of two or more, black people, (who are not normal for this area of town), to be given brochures, free nail files, and papers and papers to vote for Obama, I took what I was given, this did not alarm me, I expected it, but here is the clincher..not one person, mind you no one, was for McCain or the Republicans, WOW huh, this is very Democratic area but come on….what’s wrong here..!!!

  7. I haven’t heard this before, so I’m totally taking credit for the following moniker, which you bloggers need to diseminate (can I use that word here? he he) far and wide.

    Biden henceforth shall be Joe the publican.
