Obama Ditches Press Corps (See Also: Corpse) Once Again

Now that they’re being shunned fairly regularly, at some point, will the majority of the mainstream media ever regret doing Obama’s bidding-by-not-digging and helping carry him into the White House on their shoulders?

I didn’t think so:

Holed up with seven other global leaders in the woods of Muskoka, Canada, President Barack Obama gave the White House press corps the slip last night.

The president is attending the G-8 and G-20 summits with his global counterparts this weekend. The G-8 began yesterday in Muskoka in Huntsville, Ont., and ends today. The G-20 is in Toronto, about 150 miles away, and starts this afternoon.

Last night, the White House sent the press corps — which by agreement stays close to the president in order to report on any incident — back to Toronto, leaving the president 150 miles behind. In the wee hours of this morning, the crew of a dozen or so reporters and photographers in the press corps got back on a bus and returned to Muskoka for the day’s events.

It’s possible the president had another soccer game to attend, but given the fact that Obama was praising Huntsville’s golf courses means that he might have ditched the Press Corps (see also: corpse) to do some night-putting.

My own guess is that the president was meeting some foreign dignitaries that night, felt another bow coming on, and didn’t want yet another photo added to the wall of the Barack H. Obama Museum of Genuflection (right across the street from Apology Hut).
