How to Curry Favor with the Media

This was too good not to pass along.

Clinton Texas Media Room

The Men’s Locker Room at the Austin, TX Berger Activity Center serves double duty as the filing room for the Clinton press corps. One wonders, don’t they think these things out in advance?
“These accommodations should in no way be taken as a commentary on the quality of our media coverage,” said Clinton spokesman Doug Hattaway.

    Bill,

    Considering the decidedly anti-Hillary coverage given by the media I think these facilities are far too good. Perhaps rather than filing their stories they should flush them in the toilets located nearby. Afterall most of what they have to say is sh*t anyway.

    Obama probably provides a much comfier set of facilities. That way he can show his gratitude for all the efforts they have put forth on his behalf.

    There was a larger-than-capacity press corps and there was no choice.
    In fact, it is entirely possible these reporters established this camp on their own.

    I caught a posting similar to this on Obama-cheerleading site Dailykos, where they too, lambasted Hillary for poor press and event management.

    I bet if this were at an Obama rally, pro-Obama bloggers on Dkos and the liberal oc would have written the following:

    “Huge Crowd At Obama Event Forces Press To Washroom!”

    “Jammed crowd leaves no space for journalists covering greatest candidate ever, Barack Obama.”

    “Press willing to work in men’s room to cover Obama, rock star candidate!”

    Sean-

    Ain’t that the truth! Frankly, I’m surprised as to why the corporate media weren’t directed to the potty room SOONER. ;-)

    The Truth-

    Well said! I’m sure if this had happened at an Obama event, all the Obama fans here would spin this in the best way possible for “The Barack Star”. But hey, lucky for them this hasn’t happened… So they’ll have plenty of time to spin what happens tonight if Obama can’t win Texas & Ohio. hehe ;-)
