From the San Francisco Chronicle: Obamastyle “transparency”

Obama Administration punishes reporter for using multimedia : Bronstein at Large.
“The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights.”

Phil Bronstein knows hair….. yes he does.

Also he’s grousing at Obama for cutting off a presidential pool reporter, Carla Marinucci, because she used her little video cam  to catch some protest action during one if his fundraisers in San Francisco.

Expect for Carla to be reinstated back in into the press fold now that this scoop has gotten out all over the internet, and the legendary transparency is widely known not to exist.
