Down the Memory Hole: In 2008 Obama campaign booted 3 newspapers off his campaign plane

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

Thomas Lifson  "The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trump’s revocation of the Washington Post’s campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them.  Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances:
The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls going into election day. And in a preview of how petulant he would be act as Commander-in-Chief as it pertains to his treatment of the press, Barack Obama decided he didn’t like what three newspapers were writing about him, so he kicked its reporters off his campaign plane
Hillary’s health: the issue the media refuse to cover   . . . "This is similar to the level of disclosure Donald Trump has made of his income, which Democrats are attempting to make an issue of, demanding his tax returns.  If Hillary Clinton won’t release her actual complete medical records, I don’t see how the Democrats can demand more of Trump when it comes to his income.  And nobody is auditing Hillary’s health records."
