Sensitive Obama Bans Reporter Who Took Embarrassing Video of Him
Remember this? Well somebody must have turned very red! And then he got a little angry:
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.
The Chronicle's Carla Marinucci - who, like many contemporary reporters, has a phone with video capabilities on her at all times -shot some protesters interrupting an Obama fundraiser at the St. Regis Hotel.
Oh no! The mean reporter reported something that happened! How dare she! She must be punished.
In the name of transparency, though, she will be allowed to read wire reports to do her reporting. See, everything's fine. [San Francisco Chronicle]
