Vacationing Obama: News organizations complaining about the high cost of covering prez's many trips!
[link to www.washingtonpost.com]

No one ever said covering the most powerful man in the world would be cheap. But given how the White House has treated the traveling press lately, some journalists are wondering whether covering President Obama on the road is worth the enormous investment.

News organizations whose reporters hitched a ride on Air Force One to cover President Obama’s trip to Florida over the Presidents’ Day weekend will pay about $3,500 for the three-day journey once all the bills — air and ground transportation, hotels and food — are counted up.

With media outlets under increasing financial pressure, some question whether routine presidential trips provide much bang for the buck — or rather, millions of bucks, which is what it costs some news outlets to keep up with Obama throughout the year.

Well when the start doing some real news reporting maybe someone will give a damn. They are just pissed coz he wouldn't let them view his weekend getaway with the boys. As for covering real news and doing some real journalism such as investigating what really happened on 9/11, well they are not much interested - but they really really wanted to be able to cover all the details of his rendezvous with Tiger and Reggie Love. MSM are a joke

I wonder if they'll investigate how much Moochelles dress, and her buttboys uniforms cost for her 3 minute appearance on the Oscars show tonite? Maybe they should check on that. WTF?
