Via Big Journalism, comes a #winning video from Talk Radio Network chief investigative reporter Jason Mattera catching up to Obama’s 2012 campaign manager and director of Organizing for Action Jim Messina.
Mattera’s specialty is getting public figures to embarrass themselves on camera, and this video is no exception, as he managed to illicit a denial from Messina that Obama engages in attacks on Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Hilarious, considering the wealth of evidence to the contrary. The video touches on only a few examples from the past few years.
As Big Journalism noted:
The fun video highlights a more important point, however. Obama’s bullying focus on members of the media who do not parrot his administration’s talking points has created a climate of intimidation in media. Modus operandi at the White House has become cutting off all adverse media at the knees, ensuring that they do not gain access to the White House, and whipping up public pressure to silence those outlets.
After a San Francisco Chronicle reporter posted a video of protesters at an Obama fundraiser, the White House threatened to bar the paper from future events. The Boston Herald claimed the Obama campaign would not give it full access to a local fundraiser for the President because the paper featured an op-ed from Mitt Romney on its front page.
Radio host Rush Limbaugh asserted Obama was “part of” a “secondary boycott” against Fox News, a concept credited to Breitbart News editor-at-large Ben Shapiro in response to the President’s remarks that “If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”
CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in a radio interview that White House staffers screamed and swore at her while discussing her coverage of the Department of Justice’s “Fast and Furious” scandal. Attkisson claimed the Obama Administration said that more friendly media outlets were “reasonable,” implying she was abnormal.
Attkisson’s account matches veteran reporter Bob Woodward’s interaction with a White House official who reportedly yelled at him for a half hour before sending him an apology email which also said he would “regret” printing a story critical of Obama’s messaging during debate over sequestration cuts. That threat came to fruition as numerous left-wing journalists mocked and belittled Woodward.
As I’ve said so many times before: Obama is not a nice guy. He’s a malicious deceiver. In an article that could have been penned by me, Ron Ross of the American Spectator, noted that the country is in a state of denial about this:
Barack Obama is arrogant, intolerant, mean, dishonest, vengeful, and ruthless. He does not wish us well. He is considered by many of his supporters to be a savior. In fact, he’s a destroyer. Is that an unfair indictment? Consider the evidence.
The economy is operating far below its potential. Is he doing anything to discover why? Millions of people are unable to find jobs. Does he seem concerned? He has an abysmal ignorance of how a market economy actually works. He doesn’t show the slightest curiosity about the causes of our economic distress.
He doesn’t know what he’s doing and he doesn’t care that he doesn’t know. He’s so incredibility arrogant, he doesn’t think he even needs to know. The very fact that he thought he was qualified to fill the most important office in the world demonstrates his profound arrogance.
Obama sees no difference between his opinions and the truth. He assumes whatever he says is true simply by the act of saying it. He claims to have proposed $3.9 trillion in budget cuts but no one can explain what he’s referring to. He doesn’t seem to recognize that there is such a thing as the truth.
The reason he has to use a teleprompter is to keep himself from expressing what he really thinks. Honesty or sincerity would lead to his undoing.

Under responsible stewardship, this country’s economy could be roaring back to economic health – not limping toward its now almost inevitable demise.
