Obama’s media control issues

Restrictions on journalists — both American and from other countries — “have become a common practice for the Obama White House,” reports the Washington Post.

Dana Milbank, writing about the treatment of the press by the American president during the Nuclear Security Summit, called it “a clinic for some of the world’s greatest dictators in how to circumvent a free press.”

“Reporters for foreign outlets, many operating in repressive countries, got the impression that the vaunted American freedoms are not all they’re cracked up to be,” added Milbank.
