Obama's scripted news conferences....

  Ever wonder why, when watching an Obama news conference, Obama looks down at a piece of paper, checks who's next on his list of reporters to call on and then says something like, "So I guess there's a [insert name] out there who has a question for me?
  That would be because, just as you've suspected, Obama and his people, like any good fascist, carefully choreograph his questions to sympathetic reporters who are unlikely to ask him any tough questions.
  Statistics show that Fox News Channel, unsurprisingly, is not very popular with The Prince. Daily Caller:
“Over the course of the president’s first term, he has generally maintained the tiered approach as to which outlets ask the questions (with the Big 3 and Associated Press usually getting the green light), although the president has departed from tradition on occasion – famously calling on a digital-only media outlet’s reporter (Huffington Post’s Sam Stein) during his first news conference in February 2009,” Eric Ostermeier, a research associate at the Humphrey School’s Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, wrote.
