Shielding the VP Nominee from the MSM While Meeting a Head of State [Greg Pollowitz]
Of course when it's the gaffe-a-tron Joe Biden, the MSM really doesn't care so much:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Joe Biden has met with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili (sah-kahsh-VIH'-leh) in Milwaukee.
Photographers took pictures of the pair at the start of the meeting, but reporters weren't allowed into the session. Phil Walzak, a spokesman for Barack Obama's campaign, calls it a private meeting between the Democratic vice presidential candidate and a head of state.
Earlier this week, reporters were initially barred from meetings between Biden's Republican counterpart, Sarah Palin, and world leaders. But the restriction was later dropped. Walzak is rejecting any comparisons between the two situations.
No comparison? The situations are identical! Except, of course, the press following Biden didn't threaten to revolt over the lack of access.
