Andrea Mitchell blasts staged Obama events

Last night on Hardball with Chris Matthews NBC’s Andrea Mitchell blasted the limited access reporters had to Sen. Obama and his activities during the Afghanistan and Iraq parts of his trip.

She used the work “fake” to characterize some of the Obama interviews; and said a lot more.

You can access a clip of Mitchell’s remarks here. (The clip, about 2 minutes long, may take 10 seconds or so to load up.)

It includes a follow-up question Matthews asks Mitchell about the high percentage of black soldiers appearing in video footage from Afghanistan.

Again, the clips here.

Oooooh. Andrea's gonna be on Chris Matthew's do-do list now! How dare she say the emperor isn't wearing clothes? Did Chris get that electric tingle up his leg again??
