Andrea Mitchell is out busting Obama’s chops. On a popular current affairs show, Hardball, the lady reporter gave the following statement:
Let me say something about his message management. He didnâ€™t have reporters with him. He didnâ€™t have a press pool. He didnâ€™t do a press conference while heÂ was on the ground either on Afghanistan or Iraq. What youâ€™re seeing is not reporters brought in, youâ€™re seeing selected pictures taken by the military, questioned by the military and what some would call fake interviews because theyâ€™re not interviews with a journalist so thereâ€™s a real press issue here. Politically itâ€™s smart as can be, but weâ€™ve not seen a Presidential candidate do this in my recollection ever before.
I think she is upset because she wasnâ€™t â€œpresentâ€ during these interviews. The statement that these are fake interviews is extremely vague and out of context.
Increasingly, she is becoming irrelevant and maybe this is her way of getting back into the limelight by throwing useless remarks.
Many of you would also recall that she is married to Alan Greenspan, the financial whiz.
