The Chicago Way: CBS2 and ABC Reporters Physically Block Rahm Emmanuel From Hard Questions

Mainstream media reporters act more like the Praetorian Guard than actual journalists. Watch as William Kelly peppers former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel with questions about the 'stimulus package', Emmanuel's residency in the Windy City and political paybacks. While all this is going on, you see the legacy media types get visibly annoyed with Kelly as they lob softball questions at Rahmbo. Finally, Jay Levine, chief correspondent for CBS 2 Chicago has had enough. He turns around and threatens WIND radio host and Big Blogs contributor William Kelly with, "Let him finish or I’m gonna deck you!"

Whoa! Stand aside Junior and let a real Journalist show you how it's done. First off, ya' ask a few, "How's it feel to be back?" questions and let whatever Democratic in front of the camera riff on some standard issue talking points like; "people want a change,...quality of education,... fresh beginning,... new start,..." blah, blah, blah; you know, give him a platform to stand on. Now, to frame your shot, your guy should have his shirt sleeves rolled up, with his suit coat slung casually over his shoulder, to show Bob and Mary SixPack watching back at home that he's a regular guy.

Now that's objective Journalism folks!

Gee, I never knew "hard hitting Journalism" involved, Marquis de Queensbury rules.

Think there isn't active collusion between the legacy media and the Democrat party? Think again. As Dana Loesch observes in Big Journalism, "This goes beyond objectivity; this is case of media aggressively protecting their investment."
