More than 26 reporters went into the Obama Administration. I guess that was fine with the press back then, but not now. https://t.co/cKrsvTe3HR

The Post’s media reporter Erik Wemple joined his WaPo colleague in taking aim at Fox News in a reply to Fleischer:
All right: Were they from the same cable-news network — the same cable-news network that the president watches for hours and hours each day, and gets bogus information from?

Does he really want to go there?
No, silly. Barack Obama had his pick of reporters from every network, newspaper and magazine. They almost all fell for him, and those who didn’t join his Administration loved him and gave him soft coverage for 8 years. https://t.co/iB3knOBDTS

Anybody who was even semi-conscious during Obama’s two terms couldn’t have helped but notice that (excluding many in the media, of course).
This is obvious.

Apparently not obvious enough.
