Police Close Lafayette Park, Bar Media From Covering DADT Protest Outside White House

Defend this one, Lefties.

From AllahPundit at HotAir:

Apparently, the “protest” was nothing more than six servicemen handcuffing themselves to the fence to object to “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

[…]

We certainly don’t want to accuse a president who’s peeved at gay-rights protesters and who’s known for excluding the media from traditional press opportunities of quashing unfavorable coverage without good reason.

Exit question: On a scale of one to 10, where would this rate on the Crushing-of-Dissent-o-meter if it had happened under Bush? (Exit answer: Eight!)

I’d say more like a ten. MSNBC would have been raving about this for weeks if it had happened under Bush.

We’ll see if it gets any coverage tonight though. Maybe on Maddow?

Just sayin’.

    Wow… Keith would be drooling if this happened w/Bush in charge. But different “regime” in charge, different rules apply. Hope and change and transparency are just words to fit their ideals, apparently.
