Major media organizations protest against being shut out of president’s events in favour of official photographer.
Barack Obama’s White House has been accused of producing Soviet-style propaganda by press photographers who are furious at being denied access to the US president.
Mr Obama’s aides routinely block independent photographers from capturing him at work, before distributing flattering pictures shot by Pete Souza, his official photographer.
During a tense meeting at the White House, the practice was described by Doug Mills, a veteran photographer for The New York Times, as “just like TASS,” the Soviet Union state news agency.
More than 30 major US media organisations and the leading US press photographers’ union have protested against being barred from covering Mr Obama in an open letter to his press secretary.
“Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the president while he is performing his official duties,” said the letter, which was delivered to Jay Carney.

This is a story published for all who still have not been able to discern Obama.
You better start to pay attention.
The false “peacemakers” are one i mind and spirit. They follow a man that have no regards for any law, but are a law by him selves. Together they will lift up the last and ultimate man of lawlessness. In the Bible called the antichrist, the man of sin, doomed for destruction.
