Ironically, the number one movie this past week Beverly Hills Chihuahua was about a spoiled chihuahua that ends up in Mexico, with the regular dogs. Poor, spoiled Dean Reynolds went through a similar experience this week.
Disney's Beverly Hills Chihuahua
This pompous, full of himself Fox news wannabe whines and complains that the Obama team doesn't suck up to reporters like the desperate McCain crew does.
Reynolds writes in his report,
The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama's, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated.
Very cool. McCain's people know to kiss right wing media ass and Obama's journalist team farts too much? Or maybe those black media people are dirty? Or it's just Obama himself? Somehow, that cramped, uncomfortable and dirty message feels like it has racist, "he's different than us clean white people" feel to it.
Little Dean, and I mean small minded, small of character, grouses and whines some more that McCain has a nice, neat schedule printed out, so things are more convenient for him, for his news cycle. Maybe he's stll listening to that old pope who censured Galileo and Deanie thinks the universe revolves around him. Maybe he forgot that he already mentioned that McCain only does one event a day and Obama's doing more, duh. Reynolds says,
The McCain folks are more helpful and generally friendly. The schedules are printed on actual books you can hold in your hand, read, and then plan accordingly. The press aides are more knowledgeable and useful to us in the news media. The events are designed with a better eye, and for the simple needs of the press corps. When he is available, John McCain is friendly and loquacious. Obama holds news conferences, but seldom banters with the reporters who've been following him for thousands of miles around the country. Go figure.
Maybe this whining excuse for an impartial journalist is leaking-- leaking the truth about how mainstream media whores who sell their integrity to serve their corporate masters, how the lap journalists of the MSM are accustomed to being coddled by the administration which they serve so loyally, the administration and party which they serve by failing to ask tough questions, failing to follow up or challenge BS answers.
Reynolds wraps up his piece complaining some more and finishes with a truth.
Maybe none of this means much. Maybe a front-running campaign like Obama's that is focused solely on victory doesn't have the time to do the mundane things like print up schedules or attend to the needs of reporters.
But in politics, everything that goes around comes around.
That final line is the truth. Reynolds has made it so, attacking Obama, making him appear inconsiderate, dirty, different, disorganized. Dean, you are a real p*ssy-- a catty wimp. You must be thrilled that Drudge picked this up and used your reference to the plane's smell in his headline; "CBS REPORTER SHOCK CLAIM: OBAMA AIRPLANE SMELLS BAD; CAMPAIGN TREATS PRESS POORLY..."
In red letters no less. And then, there's the management of CBS. Nice job, letting a trashy piece air, even if it's from one of your pedigreed poodles. Get used to it. Right wing echo chamber poodles like Reynolds will NOT be served fillet mignon anymore.
