In a typical article published by NewsBusters, they were in classic form today, looking for something to complain about regarding anybody with the last name Obama. Contributing writer Lachlan Markay points out an article by The Daily Caller that found out a local paper in Northern California supposedly took out a passage that reflected poorly on First Lady Michelle Obama:
Just last week it was revealed that a San Francisco Chronicle reporter was booted from the White House press pool for the crime of recording an anti-Obama protest with her smartphone. Then today, the Pleasanton Weekly, a small newspaper in Pleasanton, California, revealed that the White House had asked that the paper remove a passage it felt reflected poorly on First Lady Michelle Obama.
And, amazingly, the paper obliged. It removed the passage, saying it didn’t want to make a “fuss“. The White House is grateful for the self-censorship, I’m sure.
