Oh My: Park Rangers Ordered to "Make Life Difficult" for Citizens; "It's Disgusting," Says One Ranger

Shutdown Theater is a nasty little production, aimed at angering and upsetting the audience.

The scoop is at the Washington Times.

The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and theyre only here to help.

Its a cheap way to deal with the situation, an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. Weve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. Its disgusting.

I have spent the last hour attacking the media for allowing little Reason to scoop them on Chad Henderson. It's not that they couldn't have gotten this story; it's that they didn't want to.

Here again, People with knowledge of the situation are willing to talk to the media. They are in fact willing to dish dirt on what's really going on.

But the media does not pursue such obvious leads because they're afraid they'll wind up with a Story they'll have to report.

Think about that: They won't ask questions, because they fear it will result in a scoop and a big story.

And then, if they have the scoop and the story, they'll then have to Spike it, and that's dangerous, because people sometimes talk.

So the cleanest way around the problem is to simply not pursue any leads at all which may result in a storyline disfavorable to Obama.

And then of course they'll claim "you can't trust Reason" and "you can't trust the Washington Times."

Oh really? We can't trust them?

We should trust the Bennington College Media, though, huh?

The people who are deliberately avoiding any difficult questions for the federal government they're allegedly the Watchdogs of?
