Just exactly who profits and by how much for this press billing? Note how it would keep a humble non-corporate media person from doing anything other than taking notes from just exactly what the Obama ops team puts on the blog--just the speeches, kids--no color commentary.
Lynn--any word about what exactly happened on that early Spring vacation to the Carribbean?

And what did the McClatchy reporters hustled out of the pool get charged that day?
What does MSNBC--the GE NUKE network that edited video and audio out of context when obama flipped off our next president pay?
