…or more accurately, I recommend the acronym BONA (Barry’s Own News Agency).
Apparently, having the MSM march lockstep to Barry’s whim and desire is not good enough. So with this move, the WH no longer has to concern itself over the proper spin of Administration policy, becaus they will do the spinning! “Baghdad Bob” Gibbs and Mr. Obama can simply dictate the content of the news out of the White House, in essence becoming its own independent news outlet.
SO with BONA, we will now have true state controlled media to rank with the champions of free expression such as TASS, XINHUA, Korea Central News Agency and ISNA.
And although I want to wax sarcastic about this development, this is real news. And presents another dangerous step toward real Socialism by the Obama Regime.
Without going into unnecessary dramatics, in the last 17 months the Obama Administration has applied (or attempting to apply) government control to:
- Banking and Financial Institutions
- Education and student loans
- Healthcare availability
- Automotive industry, and by proxy, the parts and services within this vertical
- Transportation – wheeled, rail and air traffic plus climate “sciences”, and now
- Public Information and free expression
Ladies and gentlemen, does this not feel a bit uncomfortable to anyone but me?
Add to this the nomination Elena Kagan, who in The University of Chicago Law Review published her belief in “redistribution of speech” and we have a genuine attempt to flank the media. This guy really wants to control the written and spoken word about what he does, when he does and and who he’s doing it to.
By using Gibbs and the WHs other “protocol droids”, to create an independent, Administration-operated news outlet, Mr. Obama is launching a pre-emptive strike to diminish the freedom of the press. With this action, the White House is beginning an offensive designed to choke the life out of news outlets they deem unfriendly – such as Fox News, Drudge Report, Breitbart, and of course, the Blogosphere.”
In this fashion, Mr. Obama can indeed become more “The Master Of My Universe”. Obama’s dangerous, and becoming more so by the day. November cannot come soon enough.
UPDATE: I am disappointed no one noted the subliminal message on Mr. Obama’s lower monitor screen. He says so much with so little….
