…the press didn’t have a lot of objections to “blow Jobs“:

The White House is working hard to secure deals that yield fluffy, feel good commentary about the Obama White House. One American White House reporter used colorful terms to describe the arrangement. The reporter said, “They want ‘blow jobs’ first [in the press sense]. Then you have to be on good behavior for a bit or be willing to deal, and then you get access.”

When you sell yourself for a living It just becomes a matter of haggling.

You just knew Robert Stacy was going to have fun with this didn’t you and Ann Althouse and the Mudville Gazette comment, but it is Ed Driscoll who asks the important question:

Considering the near-monolithically favorable coverage that Obama received on the campaign trail from the inside the Beltway crowd, to equally gushing coverage after The One won the gig, how gushing does the hagiography have to get before it qualifies for B.J.-level “journalism” in the White House’s jaundiced eyes?

MSM you have no business complaining, you did this to yourselves.
