Michelle Malkin : No Sympathy For Media Just Now Realizing Obama 'A Serious Threat' To Free Speech

(June 20, 2013) - On Thursday, conservative columnist Michelle Malkin joined Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy where she dug into the ongoing scandals and controversies that have engulfed President Barack Obama's administration. Malkin noted that some in the media who had previously supported the president are now more leery of the administration. She said she had little sympathy for those members of the media who are only now learning that Obama may be a threat to individual freedom.

Associated Press President and CEO Gary Pruitt recently said that his reporters are finding their sources inside the government unwilling to talk to the press in the wake of revelations regarding the Justice Department's heavy-handed investigation of sources and journalists.

"I have to say that after watching years and years of these liberal media boosters of Obama, my sympathy is tempered," Malkin said. "Now they realize that this man and this administration represent a serious threat -- not just to the free press and First Amendment rights of his critics, those of us on the right -- but mainstream media reporters who are simply trying to do their jobs."
