CBS Reporter Gripes: Obama’s Camp-Plane “Smells Terrible”

Obama Plane

Obama Plane

Wow, CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds just unloaded a pissy rant on the Obama campaign, saying the Democratic presidential nominee is going to be punished for not coddling campaign reporters well enough. And it sounds like he thinks they deserve it.

You know what we call reporters like this…whiny, arrogant b*tches.

Obviously, Dean Reynolds has never taken a public bus or a subway.

It’s not the way he wants it. Whaaa!

It’s Obama’s fault. Double-Whaaa!

I have to go there, folks.

I am very angry about this. Because we all know that an allegations and accusations are considered “facts” now.

I feel it is suggested that “That One” is a “dirty ni&&er”.

Smelly plane…uncomfortable and cramped.

Can we stoop any further?

Reynolds complains that Obama’s people pick up journalists’ luggage at a very inconvenient hour. It keeps them waiting for up to two hours in parking lots with nothing to do, bored. …Don’t even get Reynolds started on “Obama’s weak-ass plane!”

Reporter and whiner

Dean Reynolds:Reporter and whiner

Dean Reynolds: “Our shows place a premium on live reporting from the scene of campaign events. But this campaign can often be found in the air and flying around at the time the “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” is broadcast…

The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama’s, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated.

Reynolds ends his column with a naked threat: “In politics, everything that goes around comes around.” Now that’s some mature, well-seasoned political perspective right there.

He goes on to say that “McCain’s events are smaller, but to my eye, better choreographed.” Yeah, so?

Obama’s campaign schedule is fuller, more hectic and seemingly improvisational. The Obama aides who deal with the national reporters on the campaign plane are often overwhelmed, overworked and un-informed about where, when, why or how the candidate is moving about.

Sounds like a hectic campaign…which would mean, in essence, that Obama’s campaign schedule is fuller, more hectic…

Dean goes on to say: The McCain folks are more helpful and generally friendly. The schedules are printed on actual books you can hold in your hand, read, and then plan accordingly. The press aides are more knowledgeable and useful to us in the news media. The events are designed with a better eye, and for the simple needs of the press corps. When he is available, John McCain is friendly and loquacious. Obama holds news conferences, but seldom banters with the reporters who’ve been following him for thousands of miles around the country. Go figure.

Yeah, if I were in McCain’s “crew”, I’d be nicer to you, too. Writing a report like this sure helps me look “nice”.

We have changed. This is a more tolerant, open, progressive society. And yet, we’re having this conversation because [Obama] is biracial. He spent nine months in the womb of a white woman. He was raised…by his white grandparents…He got out of school and went to Harvard, and all of a sudden he’s “uppity” and there’s something wrong with him? What is wrong with us?

You said it, Donna!
