From NewsMax,

Angry over a hard-nosed interview during which Barbara West of Orlando’s WFTV peppered Sen. Joe Biden with the kind of probing questions the pro-Obama mainstream media refuses to ask, the Obama campaign has completely banned the television station from future access and interviews.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Biden was so disturbed by West’s searching questions that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate’s wife.

“This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best, for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

It is about time Obama’s campaign got tough questions.  But apparently Obama cannot take them. I guess he got overly used to the one sided media always giving him a free pass and always going after McCain.

I garantee that if this had been McCain’s campaign the left wing media and blog-o-sphere would have been using it against it against McCain.

West returned to the “spreading the wealth” question, asking Biden what he’d “say to the people who are concerned that Barack Obama will want to turn America into a socialist country much like Sweden?”

 

Biden again ducked the question, saying only that he didn’t know anybody who thinks that, “except the far-right wing of the Republican Party.”

 

WFTV news director Bob Jordan told the Sentinel: “When you get a shot to ask these candidates, you want to make the most of it. They usually give you five minutes.”

 

He added that political campaigns in general pick and choose the stations they like. And stations often pose softball questions during the satellite interviews.

Well, America, this may the couple that gets to the White House in January 20th — Someone who cannot stand to be asked hard questions — or they will completely cut off media outlets that dare to question the Messiah.
