Obama is the most pampered president of the television age. If it weren't for these same terrible reporters proclaiming out loud that they were weak in the knees over the sweet sound of his speeches, he wouldn't be president. But he has all the gratitude of a spoiled 6-year-old.

Consider this. From June 1 to 25, ABC, CBS and NBC offered about 198 hours of morning and evening news coverage. In all of that, there were 20 minutes of focus on the IRS scandal, and just 17 minutes and 48 seconds on the failures of the Veterans Affairs health care system on his watch. Each one of those scandals has drawn about two-tenths of 1 percent of the news attention ... and Obama is livid that journalists are scandal-obsessed.

He's trying to intimidate the press -- especially those who are now elbowing their colleagues to hold him accountable for his growing list of fiascoes. How far the spoiled child has fallen.
