2011-04-29: White House Punishing Press for Reporting on Bradley Manning

Submitted by x7o on Fri, 04/29/2011 – 11:52 TweetReports have emerged over efforts by the Obama administration to chastise the San Francisco Chronicle, and in particular its reporter, Carla Marinucci, for reporting on a protest staged during an Obama fundraiser in support of incarcerated whistleblower, Bradley Manning.

Marinucci was present during the San Francisco fundraiser on April 21st when several Obama supporters stood to address the president with a protest song written specially for such occasions.

Along with other attendees at the event, the SF Chronicle reporter used her video-capable phone to record the event. She later posted the video in her report on the episode.

This action, by staunch supporters of the president, all of whom payed at least the minimum of $5000 to attend the event, was a stark indicator of how the administration’s inhumane treatment of Bradley Manning is beginning to alienate the president’s base, as he faces into his reelection campaign.
