Obama the new Nixon?

Obama-Nixon

by NW Spotlight

A report released yesterday was critical of the Obama administration and what they’re doing to U.S. press freedoms. An AP story says the report “notes President Barack Obama came into office pledging an open, transparent government after criticizing the Bush administration’s secrecy, ‘but he has fallen short of his promise.'”

The AP article also includes this quote from the report “The administration’s war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration, when I was one of the editors involved in The Washington Post’s investigation of Watergate.”
