You Got To Be Shitting Me Entry# 6

For anyone who thinks the press is too cozy with the Obama administration, here’s a story about a reporter who learned that the only one he was getting cozy with was himself, tucked away in a storage closet. After being invited to cover a fundraiser for Vice President Joe Biden, Orlando Sentinel reporter Scott Powers was held in a closet because Biden’s staff reportedly did not want him mingling with guests before Biden arrived.

From The Orlando Sentinel: “Turns out the veep hadn’t arrived, but about 150 guests (minimum donation $500) were already in the house. So to prevent Scott from mingling with the crowd, a member of Biden’s advance team consigned him to a storage closet — and then stood outside the door to make sure he didn’t walk out without permission.”

Although Powers received an apology from the Vice President’s office for the strange treatment, he said, “it was frustrating and annoying that I was not given a chance to do my job fully and properly.”
