      I can only imagine how hard the Japanese laughed at Obama bowing to their little toy.
      Eh, they already were, as with most leaders around the world. They know an empty suit when they see one.

        Truth to power. To fellatio to power.
        There's nothing in there about an affair or fellatio!

        And it's just ONE reporter who said it - a reporter being forced to testify or face jail time for contempt. He said it, but in his situation the primary motivation is undoubtedly bias.

        That said, I believe Freedom of the Press is critical, and I support reporter's privilege.

            OMG! Did anybody actually read what happened here??

            This was a COURT OF APPEALS decision ... Obama has exactly ZERO influence over the justices, all of whom are appointed for life.

            In fact, the Obama administration appears to be quite PRO shield law, and although Obama's Justice Department is (of course) prosecuting CIA Agent/mole Jeffrey Sterling, they are not happy with the decision:

            The decision came just days after United States Attorney General Eric Holder presented President Barack Obama with a proposal that would re-shape current law as it applies to journalists in order to more greatly ensure that reporters aren’t targeted during investigations unless other routes that exhausted first.

            That maneuver came after two very public Justice Department scandals in which the White House was revealed to have subpoenaed the phones records for several Associated Press offices and also the email history of Fox News reporter James Rosen.

            "Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs. Our focus must be on those who break the law," Obama said during a May 23 address after those scandals first surfaced.

              Meanwhile back in the real world, Sony has programmed the robot to provide a traditional Japanese greeting by bowing and responding when the other individual bows back. The Robot bow first (indication it meeting superior) and holds the bow longer also an induction of who is more important. But back in the wacko realm this turns into something.

                When these guys are getting their world views from Breitbart and Drudge this is what happens.

                  This is the sort of place our resident ODS sufferers just adore.

                    , you know people are grasping when they feel the need to try to find a story explaining why the president is bowing to a robot. I think this is the least of his problems, but the sheep will do anything for their messiah.

                      It's not that he is playing with a robot, no big deal. It's just that Obama gets all fluff in the media and rarely much about the real issues. Our journalism is a nuetered unic now. No one digging for the big stories.

                        I wonder what the betting line in the back room at Sony was? One bet for if they could get Obama to bow to a robot and an over-under bet on how many times they could get him to do it.
