The Associated Press (AP) reports that on only 2 occasions were they allowed to take their own photos on Obama.
So where do all of Obama's photos come from? Well, he has his own photographer that hands out photos to the press. Other presidents have at times
used stock photo handouts in the past also. "Have at times", is the key phrase here.
Gee, this sounds familiar. Where have we heard of such a thing happening before? Can you refresh my memory? And some people here ask why I post
every thing I can find on Obama? I consider this big news that we finally have someone calling out Obama on his communistic propaganda policy. And
yes I say communistic. Would any free country totally control the photos distributed of their leader?
We must not let this one slip by us. This must stay in the top news here at ATS. This is a serious wake-up call to every American. Communism is
happening before your very eyes, and yet so many here refuse to see this. Look Obama was exposed as a communist before any of this came up. Now you
have even more proof. What more will it take? For the US to be totally in the grip of communism?
Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House's refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate
press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers.
These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon.
The news organization says its reporters and photogs have only been allowed to take pictures of Obama on two occasions, and both during his first
term. And the AP says it has never been allowed to photograph the president with his staff.
Top AP photographer says Obama photos are nothing more
than 'staged propaganda'
This is not the first time the AP has insinuated that Obama's photo policy is bad for modern journalism. Editors at the country's largest wire
service began complaining about Obama's autocratic media strategy during his first campaign for the presidency in 2008.
They even sent a letter to the Obama campaign that said, "There are many ways in a campaign to control your message and conduct private meetings that
do not involve deceiving the press corps."
