Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden


blogs.orlandosentinel.com

WFTV-Channel 9's Barbara West conducted a satellite interview with Sen. Joe Biden on Thursday. A friend says it's some of the best entertainment he's seen recently. What do you think?

West wondered about Sen. Barack Obama's comment, to Joe the Plumber, about spreading the wealth. She quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn't being a Marxist with the "spreading the wealth" comment.

"Are you joking?" said Biden, who is Obama's running mate. "No," West said.

West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama could be tested early on as president. She wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America's days as the world's leading power were over.

"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden shot back.

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.

McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was "a result of her husband's experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West."

We are getting a peek into the O'Bama administration and its policy towards a media that's not in the tank for them.

And this from the Huffington Post Blog:


"huffingtonpost.com — Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden gave it to Florida WFTV anchor Barbara West Thursday when she asked him a slew of questions straight out of John McCain's talking points"


So anyone in the media (or plumbing business) asking this campaign tough questions, they "gotta" come straight from "John McCain's talking points"? Give me a break, the only reason these questions sound anything like John McCain talking points is because no one else has had the balls to ask them, and it appears no one ever will again.

This is a glimpse into the O'Bama administration, you better ask nice questions and play along, or you will get no more interviews... Until we can get the "fairness Doctorine" enacted...

Make no mistake about it, the first to go under the O'Bama admin will be freedom of speech, second... guns!

He's going to have to find them first, the guns not the speeches. And he may just get the guns after he gets the bullets first, mine will be emptied.
