Hello Big Brother
The media in general is at the beck and call of democrats - even when Nature calls:
- Reporters covering the House Democrats' retreat in Philadelphia this week are having a much different experience than when they’re on their home turf on Capitol Hill.
Reporters are being escorted to and from the restroom and lobby and are being barred from entering the hotel outside of scheduled events, even if they've been invited by a member of Congress.
During Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks at the retreat Friday, reporters were required to have a staff member, usually a junior member of the press team, escort them when going to the bathroom or to the lobby.
Anyone out there remember a time when any self-respecting reporter would bristle, then refuse, to accede to controls like this? It was only 25 or 30 years ago after all.
