Mainstream Media Desperate To Memory Hole This Video Of Barack Obama Doing Exactly What They Are Furious At Trump For, While They Cheer Him On

Kirsters Baish| In case you weren’t already aware, this past week, the Trump White House decided to ban CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins from attending a press event that was scheduled in the White House Rose Garden after she shouted out numerous inappropriate questions at the President.

The “fake news” CNN reporter was booted from the press briefing when she screamed six questions at Trump while he was standing with President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker.

“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so. Subsequently, our staff informed her she was not welcome to participate in the next event, but made clear that any other journalist from her network could attend,” explained White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The Washington Times’ Joseph Curl, who has been covering news at the White House for 12 years for his current employer, explained that the kind of behavior Collins exhibited is generally not allowed at White House events, especially with how many questions she blurted out. Mainstream media, however, decided to flip out and turn it on the Trump administration.

“The White House barred a CNN journalist from attending a public appearance by President Trump in the Rose Garden on Wednesday, an apparent act of retaliation that drew immediate rebuke from news organizations and signaled the latest escalation of Mr. Trump’s hostilities toward the news media,” The New York Times wrote about the incident.

Part of this is true. It did create an “immediate rebuke from news organizations,” but everything Trump does has this effect. But was it “the latest escalation of Mr. Trump’s hostilities toward the news media?”

It’s all about how you interpret it. Under the Obama administration, things were interpreted very differently. One Twitter user reminded Americans about a video from 2015. It was filmed during a White House event for LGBT activists.

The media responded as the media would be expected to respond.

Conservative Tribune explains:

Politico called out a reporter for The Daily Caller for a “surprising breach of etiquette” — which was of course what happened on Wednesday. But the focus of Politico’s reporting about Collins’ conduct was somewhat different on Wednesday, with the first paragraph being: “The White House on Wednesday denied access to a CNN reporter for a news conference with President Donald Trump that was open to other journalists.”

Politico doesn’t seem to care too much about keeping etiquette these days.

The following is how CNN reacted when the LGBT activist was tossed out:

Things like this happened multiple times throughout Obama’s presidency, but the mainstream media didn’t call attention to anything the way they have called attention to Collins being kicked out.

The media seemed pretty quiet, despite the fact that the Obama White House didn’t have very good media relations.

The mainstream media can go ahead and be angry at the Trump administration for kicking Collins out of a press event, but that doesn’t change the fact that they simply treated Obama differently. Collins was disruptive and disrespectful during the press briefing, so she was not allowed to come to the following event, seems pretty fair. I wonder what the media’s reaction would have been if the Obama White House had booted Collins…
