Beckel: WH Called & Bludgeoned Me After Suggesting Obamacare Delay



This was, I believe last week. But some on this board can't seem to understand the Obama-control over the press. Here is just one example...

quote:

Liberal TV host Bob Beckel on Wednesday claimed he was “bludgeoned” by a White House official over the phone after he criticized the Obamacare rollout and suggested the law’s implementation should be delayed for 6 months to a year.

“I said, ‘look, you can’t do this thing — yes it’s true, [Obamacare is] not a website, but it’s a portal to get through to get insurance,’” Beckel said.

Beckel’s claim line up with other media personalities that have made the same type of allegations against the Obama administration.

CNN’s Carol Costello on Wednesday morning said “President Obama’s people can be quite nasty.”

“They don’t like you to say anything bad about their boss, and they’re not afraid to use whatever means they have at hand to stop you from doing that, including threatening your job,” she added.

There are other Obama bullying the media stories. One specifically, a few weeks ago where a reporter said if they do not report what they are told they in so many words-get blackballed.

Please post the links to these articles to keep all of them in one thread; as it is difficult to keep-up with. TIA :)

At this point, who cares?

frick these people in the media, Beckel included.

You licked Obama's boots for six years. Keep licking. You are a pawn. That is all you ever were. You, along with the millions of American citizens you helped brainwash.

Now you want to show some pride when you realize you were nothing but a useful idiot? Yeah. Too late.

Keep licking. That's all you are good for.

Everybody around here knows how much I like to tell my theory about learning life lessons the hard way.

I'm glad that these boot-licking journalists are feeling the Statist boot on their necks. Maybe they might one day learn the Hard Lesson about allowing Democrats to consolidate political power.

If they know what's good for them, they better get in line, because Obama's people are not joking about making them feel some pain.

So, Obama's people can threaten your job at CNN.

Too bad we don't have Richard Nixon to kick around anymore.

The New Left Radical Democrats prefer dictatorship because it's a more efficient model of governance for collectivist/socialist regimes.

Don't worry. They will.

For some odd reason, they actually believe they will benefit from all of this as well, as if they will eventually be invited into "the club".

Even as a very loyal knob polisher as Bob can be on his show even he can stray from the plantation and they need to be shackled ASAP. He mmake the show kind of hard to bare with his bloviating speeches. I wish Fox could to terms with Pat Caddell or Juan for a replacement for the fat man.

Interesting.

Here's the complete segment

Hemmer: I know this is your favorite topic

Beckel: Yeah, it's like being a fire hydrant at the Westminster Dog Show

Juan is a shill and Pat isn't prog enough. Beckel falls off the DNC wagon just enough to make him interesting.

Why is the media such pussies? I don't care who is in office... if I was part of the media, I'd be pissed off if the WH thought they could intimidate us.

It would make me want to write bad stuff about them just to let them know who's really got the leverage here. And let them know they better shut the frick up.

Or you can use critical thinking and examine each story on its own merit.

What incentive would Beckel, an openly liberal commentator, have to lie about this??

What's his name, Breitbart? Wasn't he writing nasty stuff and supposedly had more and more dirt on Obama?

Young, seemingly healthy man just dies and within a day already ruled natural causes.

Everyone already sees what has happened with the AP. Obama doesn't care. He won't stop until he is no longer questioned anymore. The most corrupt, spiteful, divisive president in the history of this country. He should be ashamed of himself. It goes far beyond political theory. frick that POS

The whole thing would've come crashing down had Nixon pressured Ben Bradlee to shitcan Woodward & Bernstein.
