Seems to be the pattern: Throw out crap like this

and try to disappear it when people not on their side take notice.
President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign website has removed several videos that pitched alarmist messages to African-American voters, following reporting by The Daily Caller and the Fox News Channel.

In one video that the campaign yanked from the “African-Americans for Obama” section of its website Tuesday, actress Tatyana Ali seemed to predict that a second Obama term would bring a host of benefits to African-Americans once the president no longer had to concern himself with campaigning.

“What really excites me … is that a U.S. president has only two terms,” a laughing Ali said in the footage that the Obama campaign scrubbed from its website Tuesday. “In the second term, ‘it’s on,’ because we don’t have to worry about re-election.”

And hiding such doesn't hurt when the major media- when not busy falsifying video or audio to push the progressive agenda- won't report on things that show Obama screwing up.
Most summits are mush-mouthed affairs full of pleasantries. Tuesday's "Three Amigos" summit was different: a litany of how President Obama has alienated our neighbors.

You wouldn't know this from reading the mainstream media, which reported the disastrous summit with anodyne headlines like: "Obama talks trade, energy with Canada, Mexico leaders at Summit" (Associated Press) and "Obama, Mexico's Calderon vow more drug crime cooperation" (Reuters).
Energy has become a searing rift between the U.S. and Canada and threatens to leave the U.S. without its top energy supplier.

The Winnipeg Free Press reported that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper warned Obama the U.S. will have to pay market prices for its Canadian oil after Obama's de facto veto of the Keystone XL pipeline. Canada is preparing to sell its oil to China.

Until now, NAFTA had shielded the U.S. from having to pay global prices for Canadian oil. That's about to change.
Excelsior of Mexico City reported that President Felipe Calderon bitterly brought up Operation Fast and Furious, a U.S. government operation that permitted Mexican drug cartels to smuggle thousands of weapons into drug-war-torn Mexico. This blunder has wrought mayhem on Mexico and cost thousands of lives.

The mainstream U.S. press has kept those questions out of the official press conferences, while Obama has feigned ignorance to the Mexicans and hasn't even apologized.
They've forgotten something: Obama apologizes for things he can blame on someone else, not for his own crap.

NBC wants this to go away, which is a good reason not to let it:
“During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret,” NBC News said in a statement e-mailed to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. “We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.”

When asked if anyone at Today had lost their job or had been reassigned as a result of the investigation, an NBC spokeswoman said: “We will not be commenting on our course of action.”
This was no 'error': they deliberately, with malice edited that audio to make people hear what NBC wanted them to hear. And they want this to make it go away. Well, you and ABC(with their video editing) took your credibility, wiped your ass with it and threw it away, and we're not going to let it be forgotten.

Well, this had to make some people in the Administration uncomfortable:
The attorney began to answer, thinking the judge was referring to the immediate healthcare case on trial. And that's when Judge Smith dropped the hammer:

"I would like to have from you by noon on Thursday…a letter stating what is the position of the attorney general and the Department of Justice, in regard to the recent statements by the president, stating specifically and in detail in reference to those statements what the authority is of the federal courts in this regard in terms of judicial review.

"That letter needs to be at least three pages single spaced, no less, and it needs to be specific. It needs to make specific reference to the president’s statements and again to the position of the attorney general and the Department of Justice."
Just sucks when you threaten that Judicial Branch thing and they don't take it quietly, doesn't it?

Just heard that, after examining some of the damage in the Dallas-Fort Worth area from the twisters yesterday, looks like one tornado- currently the strongest from what I've heard- was probably a F3. Think about semi-trailers flying around, and know that there are two higher categories... Damn. WUWT has this, including a map of the currently confirmed tracks. And notes that CNN is hyping "GLOBAL WARMENING!!!" as being involved. Makes me want to grab the idiots and say something like "IT'S SPRING, you morons, there's ALWAYS tornadoes in spring around here!"

Also from WUWT, the National Wildlife Federation can officially kiss my ass

Ok, when Obama's supporters are basically asking "What the hell is he doing saying things like that?", it tells you he REALLY stepped in it. Not to mention all the other "This clown is supposedly an expert on Constitutional law?"

I wonder... Ref the ABC and NBC faking, I wonder how big a lawsuit it would take to REALLY get their attention? And maybe make them clean house?
Assuming they give a damn about anything but pushing the preferred narrative, of course.
