Linda Douglass – former ABC news reporter, turned White House Obamacare spokesperson, turned Atlantic Media vice president – hosted a party this past weekend for out-going Obama senior staffer David Axelrod. Many reporters and Obama Administration officials showed up, as well as President Obama himself, to the highbrow party in Georgetown. The commingling of journalists and White House officials highlights the mainstream media’s problem with covering Obama: they want to be friends with this Administration.
Our system of government functions best when an honest and skeptical press is asking our leaders the tough questions – not partying with them. These left-wing partisans who call themselves journalists have been disgracing their profession for too long. Linda Douglass is part of the liberal media elite who will stop at nothing to prop President Obama and his socialist policies up. It is because of so-called journalists like Linda Douglass, Americans have lost faith in the media.
Here is a list of supposed members of the media who have joined the Obama Administration over the last two years. It will be interesting and telling to see who moves back to the “main stream media” two years from now.
