President’s free pass with media ends at basketball court

Attention Media Matters: consider bookmarking this page for handy reference the next time some right-wing nut job starts complaining that President Obama gets a free pass from the lapdogs in the media. A few brave reporters took a shot at the president’s lackluster performance on the basketball court at today’s White House Easter egg roll. That basket? He didn’t make that.

Barack Obama: Still bad at basketball.

Who’s surprised that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney attempted to spin the president’s airballs?

BuzzFeed’s White House reporter learned an important lesson about covering the 44th president.

Wow ppl get really upset when you tell them the person they voted for missed some buckets on the bball court.

Herman Cain and other citizens were less than impressed as well.

Check out this video of Obama’s basketball meltdown. For all the time he spends practicing, we expected more…

Honestly, I didn’t want to watch the vid, let alone tweet about this. But it’s great. He missed the rim on a layup.

For his sake I hope his Secret Service agents are better shots.
