Update: In a pants-on-fire moment, the White House press office today denied anyone there had issued threats to remove Carla Marinucci and possibly other Hearst reporters from the press pool covering the President in the Bay Area.

 

Chronicle editor Ward Bushee called the press office on its fib:

 

Sadly, we expected the White House to respond in this manner based on our experiences yesterday. It is not a truthful response. It follows a day of off-the-record exchanges with key people in the White House communications office who told us they would remove our reporter, then threatened retaliation to Chronicle and Hearst reporters if we reported on the ban, and then recanted to say our reporter might not be removed after all.

 

The Chronicle's report is accurate.

 

If the White House has indeed decided not to ban our reporter, we would like an on-the-record notice that she will remain the San Francisco print pool reporter.

 

I was on some of those calls and can confirm Ward's statement.

 

Messy ball now firmly in White House court.

The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights.

 

White House officials have banished one of the best political reporters in the country from the approved pool of journalists covering presidential visits to the Bay Area for using now-standard multimedia tools to gather the news.

It's all the dems and those who support them.

 

the ends justify the means, they are that arrogant.

 

Which is, the ultimate in corrupt social thinking.

 

From trying to manipulate content and participation on this board,

 

all the way up to the WH trying to intimidate the media into not being objective,

 

in their eyes, that's "unfriendly".

 

Just like a cult. It makes no sense, it's destructive, but they refuse to see it, and see a lie that they adhere to....

 

it's too crazy for me to get a solid description of it in words.

 

Like, trying to put in words how full of baloney Heck's doofus declarations on subjects HE picks, are.
