    In what is now proving an embarrassing moment for the WH.

    It all started with this video.

    http://bcove.me/mq3c122l

    It was recorded by a Hearst reporter from the press pool covering the President in the Bay Area. The reporter and others there to cover the event were to cover it by print only. No video.

    The video was embarrassing for Obama and the WH as it shows his supporters have grown tired of him not coming through with his promises.

    The White House is objecting to a reporter taking advantage of her "print pool" access to do something other than writing by recording the scene with her phone.

    Behind the scenes, the WH in confidential communications threatened to remove the reporter and ban any other reporters from the Hearst News group.


    But these "confidential communications" are now being leaked as well, further embarrassing the WH further.

    "It is not a truthful response. It follows a day of off-the-record exchanges with key people in the White House communications office who told us they would remove our reporter, then threatened retaliation to Chronicle and Hearst reporters if we reported on the ban, and then recanted to say our reporter might not be removed after all."
    To top it off, the WH has come forward and have lied about the confidential communications and desire to ban any of the Hearst News reporters in retaliation for the video. And the lie is being pointed out to their dismay.

    Thou the WH says nothing has been done, the reporter, one
    Carla Fatwa is currently no longer in the press pool. Some thing that many news outlets have noted. This points out that the WH has stripped her for the video, even thou they claim they have not.


    For more on this, and its being updated.
