Who would have bet in 2008, the dawn of the Obama era, that James Risen New York Times‘ supercritic of the Bush Administration would say in 2014 that Barrack Obama was “the greatest enemy of press freedom in a generation”?
No one. And certainly no one at the Times that’s for sure.
(From Mediaite.com) “It’s hypocritical. A lot of people still think this is some kind of game or signal or spin. They don’t want to believe that Obama wants to crack down on the press and whistle-blowers. But he does. He’s the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.”
