CBS Refuses To Release Obama Audio

Most of you know I used to work for CBS Radio. When the new program director was brought in, he kept pushing CBS news shows on us as sources. One day he asked why I wasn’t watching our parent company’s products religiously. I responded by saying CBS’s TV news products were a joke, and it was well known in the industry (CBS Radio is separate). I was fired shortly after that, but my statement was, and is, true.

Exhibit A:

Last weekend, His Presidency Barack Obama was captured making potentially offensive comments to a group of big money donors who had paid large sums of money for special access to His Presidency.

We observed that CBS only released “selectively edited” moments from the raw tape. We know how much the mainstream media values complete and full disclosure of recordings of this nature, so we found it curious, to say the least, that there was not one drop of intellectual curiosity from these guardians of media purity regarding the content of the full recording.

Yes, But However!” blog has apparently confirmed CBS is intentionally withholding the audio via Twitter.

@markknoller Why haven’t you released all of the audio of President Obama’s “donor meeting”? If you have please link?

@markknoller This is my third request. Why will you not release the full audio of Obama’s donor conversation?

@yesbuthowever My editors decided against it.

I rest my case.
