Washington Times kicked off Obama plane

The Washington Times, N.Y. Post and Dallas Morning News — three newspapers that recently endorsed John McCain — have been kicked off Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s plane in the final days of his campaign.

The Obama campaign informed The Washington Times Thursday evening of its decision, which came two days after The Times editorial page endorsed Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama. The Times editorial page runs completely independent of the news department.

“This feels like the journalistic equivalent of redistributing the wealth. We spent hundreds of thousands of dollars covering Senator Obama’s campaign, traveling on his plane, and taking our turn in the reporter’s pool, only to have our seat given away to someone else in the last days of the campaign,” said Washington Times Executive Editor John Solomon. News organizations typically pay campaigns for the cost of traveling on the candidate’s planes.

The Washington Times endorsed Mr. McCain on Tuesday.

It’s not sufficient that the Obama campaign is selling Chicago election night coverage packages to news outlets, now they want only worshipful documentarians who will produce hagiographies about his historic importance.

UPDATE
Via Dirty Harry, Change We Can Believe In?

Watching a Senator Barack Obama worship service — I mean campaign rally stop — almost makes me wonder why I’m not voting for him. Will he really begin to “heal the planet” and slow the rise of the oceans? Can all of these devoted disciples of The One be wrong?

Yes they can!

Excuse me for not taking part in the Obamagasms but this election is looking a lot more like 1984 instead of 2008. The Ministry of Truth keeps telling us what is okay to believe about Obama and that his words don’t really mean what they do. News outlets are banned from interviewing the candidate, citizens are investigated for asking questions, websites are scrubbed of controversial information and potentially embarrassing video tapes are kept under wraps. I understand this sounds a little Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, but hear me out.

Read the rest.

    This is my concern why does the media not speak about this? They are all so eager to find all the wrong on Ms. Palin & Senator McCain. What aboout this?
    But, I feel if you view
    MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with. About
    six months ago, I started thinking ‘where did the
    money come from for Obama’? I have four daughters who went to College, and
    we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard
    and there were lots of student loans.

    I started looking into Obama’s life.

    ________________________________

    Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California . He is very
    open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was
    wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself
    to his studies. ‘Barry’ (that was the name
    he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan
    Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan . During the summer of 1981, after
    his second year in college, he made a ’round the world’
    trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia , next Hyderabad in India ,
    three weeks in Karachi , Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s
    family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family.

    My question – Where did he get the money for this trip? Neither I, nor any
    one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they where in
    college.

    When he came back he started school at Columbia
    University in New York . It is at this time he wanted everyone to call him
    Barack – not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia ?
    It’s not cheap! to say the least. Where did he get money
    for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe. After Columbia , he went to Chicago to work
    as a Community Organizer for $12,000. a year. Why Chicago ? Why not New York ?
    He was already living in New York .

    By ‘chance’ he met Antoin ‘Tony’ Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria ,
    and a real estate developer in Chicago . Rezko has been convicted of fraud and
    bribery this year. Rezko, was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Decade’
    by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association’. About two
    years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School . Do you have any idea what
    tuition is for Harvard Law School ? Where did he get the money for Law School
    ? More student loans?

    After Law school, he went back to Chicago . Rezko offered him a job, which he
    turned down. But, he
    did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They
    represented ‘Rezar’ which Rezko’s firm. Rezko was one of
    Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago
    . In
    2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter
    David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with ‘seed
    money’ for his U.S. Senate race. In 2005, Obama purchased a
    new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking
    price). With ALL those Student Loans – Where did he get the money for the
    property?

    On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased
    the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi
    Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before
    Obama’s new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi
    Auchi many times with Rezko.

    Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele
    Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any
    major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett
    born? Ready for this? Shiraz , Iran ! Do we see a pattern here? Or am I going
    crazy?

    On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was
    ‘sacked’ after the press found out he was having regular contacts with
    ‘Hamas’, which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran . This past
    week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that
    during Obama’s visit to Iraq , he asked their leaders to do nothing about the
    war until after he is elected, and he will ‘Take care of things’.

    Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that were born in Pakistan ?
    They are in charge of all those ‘small’ Internet campaign contribution
    for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and
    middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East ?

    And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a
    verbal slip that was made on ‘This Week’ with George Stephanapoulos.
    Obama on talking about his religion said, ‘My Muslim faith’. When
    questioned, ‘he make a mistake’. Some mistake!

    All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it –
    Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times
    – Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington
    Times – September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

    Now the BIG question – If I found out all this information on my own, Why
    haven’t all of our ‘intelligent’ members of the press been reporting
    this?

    A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear – ‘Beware of the enemy from

    If your not politically expedient for the Obama campaign, then he is obviously through with you. Liberals in general have become so arrogant, intolerant, and mean spirited that I dare say they have become the very things they have hated so much.
