Fatal Attraction: CNN ‘Reporter’ Gives Up Writing Obama a Letter a Day


The “Mainstream Media creepy obsession with Obama” story of the week comes to us by way of Pundit Press:

Tom Foreman is a CNN “reporter” who few have heard of. Maybe no one’s noticed him because he’s been writing letters to President Barack Obama. Often. Every single day, in fact. For four years. That’s 1,460 letters.

Mr. Foreman, however, has declared that he will no longer be sending Mr. Obama any letters, as he proclaimed in his aptly named article My last letter to the president. His article proudly explained:

CNN reporter and anchor Tom Foreman has been writing a letter each day, every day, to President Barack Obama since he was inaugurated four years ago. This is his last one.

What precisely was in the letters, on top of the sheer number of them, is particularly disturbing. The joy that this exercise gave Foreman at times is all the more unnerving.

Mr. Foreman often ended letters asking the President to “call when you can,” because he knows he’s busy. He told him about “a guy [who] started giving [him] a hard time” in junior high. He talked about “Rachel Ray [and] her recipe for Warm Provencal Chicken Salad!”

Mr. Foreman even talked about the President’s daughter Malia in a shower.

Uh, if this “reporter” wasn’t an MSM friendly I’m guessing he’d have had a chat with the Secret Service by now. And I’m sure Chris Matthews has already sent Foreman several “step off, bitch, he’s mine!” emails.

Foreman’s article about his daily letter writing campaign to Obama includes this:

I don’t know if he ever read a single line. All I know is that in almost every missive, I invited the president to give me a call. He never did. And I don’t blame him.

Me neither. Does anybody realize how many of these kinds of letters the president probably gets from “objective journalists” each day? It would be impossible for the White House to answer all of them.
