World media complain about Obama’s overcontrol

Well, Obama got a pretty easy ride from media during the campaign, but now that he’s president, he’s showing Harperish control freak  behavior toward media. After the recent nuclear summit, media from around the globe complained about lack of access to information and Obama’s control tactics. Wonder what effect this will have on his popularity ratings? Harper’s control tactics have kept him stuck in a minority position for five years, so it doesn’t look to good for Obama. Most politicians are wary of media, but smart ones like Kennedy and Reagan used their considerable personal charm to get them on side.
