The Press is not your Friend

Case in point:

A paparazzo who took photographs of the daughters of President Barack Obama walking along a Hawaiian beach last week made a big mistake — at least, in the eyes of the Oval Office.

I can understand being protective of his daughters, but here’s where it gets interesting:

Because as soon as the images of Sasha and Malia were sent out to news outlets around the world, the photographer received an official letter from the White House telling him to immediately stop their release, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.

Ironically, the man was waiting for pregnant Hollywood star Jessica Simpson to leave her Kailua Beach retreat in Honolulu County when the Presidential sisters, vacationing with their famous parents in an adjacent property since Dec. 21, came walking-by.

So here some schlub trying to get a picture of some Hollywood dolt finds themself in the presence of deity- who wouldn’t snap a few pics?

The letter was from the White House Press Office, the source added.

“The letter said that other media had been respecting these requirements.”

Try to wrap your mind around “respecting these requirements”. Heck, just try to wrap your mind around the words “respect” and “Obama” in the same sentence.

Where was the press office when David Letterman violated the respect of Sarah Palin’s 14 year old daughter?

More importantly, who in the media turned in this poor photographer? Is everything cleared with the press office? Just when does a fawning press become propagandists?
