The Purge has begun

This may sound familiar to those that experienced a similar event in Cuba right after the 1959 revolution. Obama and his campaign have decided that there is no room on the campaign airplane for journalists whose editorial boards did not endorse him for president. With only four days left in the presidential race, Obama has effectively purged his campaign of the reporters from the Washington Times, the New York Post, and the Dallas Morning News, all of which have endorsed McCain for president through their editorial boards.
Even though this should not be a surprise, especially coming from a campaign of “Interview Nazis,” the sheer brazenness of this move should send chills down the spines of all of us who value one of the cornerstones of this country’s foundation: the freedom of the press.
Obama’s campaign, of course, does not see this as a purge, but rather, they are just making room for some other journalists. Which begs the question: In an Obama presidency, just how much room will there be for a free and unfettered press?

  1. I guess, is about time to get some tips from Cuban independent journalists. I don’t believe there will be any decent reporting during Obama’s administration.
