You will be assimilated

And if you don't toe the "Obama as savior" line, you get cut off from future interviews and contact with the candidates.

It would seem that the Obama campaign has no room for the tough questions...

In this interview, Biden gets asked some legitimate questions. Notably, the reporterette asked Biden if he thought that Obama's "spread the wealth around" comment was Marxist in any way.

Instead of answering the questions, Biden dodged. And after the interview,

Biden so disliked West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.
So much for freedom of the press, eh? Either you agree with the Pravda line, or you're cut off.

Say what you want about the Bush administration, but I still recall seeing that hag Helen Thomas at Bush White House briefings.... Not to mention the rest of an overly hostile press.

I wonder if that's the kind of change we all want?
