This has been in the news, but I wanted to post it anyway. As you may have heard, Obama is accepting the Newsmaker of the Year award from National Newspaper Publishers Association. But, he has decided that he does not want press to be able to see or hear anything at the event to be able to report on it. Yep, he has barred the press from attending this event. Just another example of the President who promised to have a transparent presidency is not!
