Over a week ago, when President Obama was in Chicago, he had a private meeting with some donors and the microphone is said to have been accidentally left on. However, CBS News’ Mark Knoller was still listening and recording. What was widely reported (and CBS released the audio clip) were Obama’s words about the GOP trying to “sneak” their agenda into the budget bill.
Because that was the only audio that was released, the website Big Government wondered:
We observed that CBS only released “selectively edited” moments from the raw tape. We know how much the mainstream media values complete and full disclosure of recordings of this nature, so we found it curious, to say the least, that there was not one drop of intellectual curiosity from these guardians of media purity regarding the content of the full recording.
The website Yes, But However asked Knoller via Twitter:
To paraphrase Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men, CBS has determined “you can’t handle the context!”
There was a written report from Knoller on the night in question that might give away what Obama said that is being withheld in audio form:
“What’s striking when you enter into the federal government is how generally smart and dedicated people are.” He did opine that some employees “are slugs and not trying to do their job. But that’s true of any large institution.”
“Slugs not trying to do their jobs” — is that anything like “nonessential employees”?
Why won’t CBS release the full tape? Who knows… maybe the network doesn’t want their closest seat at the next press conference to be in the john down the hall from the briefing room (in the stall next to the reporter from Texas).
Insinuating that some government workers are lazy, inattentive slugs just wouldn’t sit well with the public unions, would it, VP Biden? … Joe?
