More of Obama’s “Silence the Opposition” Tactics

Journalists from three major newspapers that endorsed John McCain — the Washington Times, the New York Post and the Dallas Morning News — have been booted from Barack Obama’s campaign plane for the final leg of the presidential race.

The Washington Times reported Friday that it was notified of the Obama campaign’s decision Thursday evening — even though the paper has covered Obama from the start.

That from Fox, today. However you look at this, and the WFTV and KYW incidents and a half dozen others we’ve mentioned on BitsBlog,  it’s clear Obama cannot deal with any opposition.

It’s as the executive editor of the Washington times suggested:

I can only hope that the candidate who describes himself as wanting to unite the nation doesn’t have some sort of litmus test for who he decides gets to cover the campaign

Clearly, a vain hope.

Like what you see, America?
