NY POST, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, WASHINGTON TIMES TOLD TO GET OUT… ALL 3 ENDORSED MCCAIN

**Exclusive**

The Obama campaign has decided to heave out three newspapers from its plane for the final days of its blitz across battleground states — and all three endorsed Sen. John McCain for president!

The NY POST, WASHINGTON TIMES and DALLAS MORNING NEWS have all been told to move out by Sunday to make room for network bigwigs — and possibly for the inclusion of reporters from two black magazines, ESSENCE and JET, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Despite pleas from top editors of the three newspapers that have covered the campaign for months at extraordinary cost, the Obama campaign says their reporters — and possibly others — will have to vacate their coveted seats so more power players can document the final days of Sen. Barack Obama’s historic campaign to become the first black American president.

  1. First of all, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon-owned Washington Times hardly qualifies as a “newspaper.” It does a fairly good impression of one, though.

    Second, those reporters were welcomed to ride on Biden’s plane. Or they can fly commercial. Or use the internet. No one is stopping them from “reporting.” There’s a limit to how many people can fit on a plane. Deal with it.

  2. Not a little bit coincindental that the three ousted outlets all endorsed McCain? Just a little?

  3. if the terrorist gets elected…you can bet he will only allow reporters access that give him a ‘pass’ and never axe da impotent questions

  4. Obama Brownshirts snap into action.

  5. Q&A

    In what state will "He" set up the Gulags?

  6. Was the plane in the air at the time?
