Transparency! White House Bars Media From Press Award Ceremony

I guess they figure the idiot-in-chief will say something stupid. Can't they start putting intelligent comments onto his TelePrompter?
We are not making this up:

Barack Obama was elected commander-in-chief promising to run the most transparent presidential administration in American history.

This achievement and the overall promise of his historic administration caused the National Newspaper Publishers Assn. to name him "Newsmaker of the Year."

The president is to receive the award from the federation of black community newspapers in a White House ceremony this afternoon.

The Obama White House has closed the press award ceremony to the press.

From the president's official schedule:

"Later in the afternoon, the President and the First Lady will attend a reception with the National Newspaper Publisher Association in the State Dining Room, where they will be presented the Newsmaker of the Year award. This event is closed press."
You know there must be problems when even his biggest cheerleaders aren't invited to an offical White House event.
