President Obama vs Mr. Obama – CNN iReport (“Why is it not an issue to disrespect our current President?/….. the incredible amount of disrespect reporters, pundits, and politicians have towards our current President when it comes to the way they address him as just Obama.”)

 

I am an avid CNN viewer, either here in the US or when traveling overseas in Asia and Pakistan.

I have noticed repeatedly the incredible amount of disrespect reporters, pundits, and politicians have towards our current President when it comes to the way they address him as just Obama.

In today’s heated political polarization in this country, it is astounding to see the amount of American journalists that don’t address our President as President Obama but rather as Mr. Obama (as witnessed today by journalist on CNN), or simply just as ‘Obama’. When George W. Bush was President, if a reporter ran a controversial report, or showed any disrespect they were usually fired or reprimanded. Why does CNN advocate this and not correct pundits and reporters?

Why is it not an issue to disrespect our current President?

When a right-wing politician does it, or even when a CNN reporter refers to the President simply as ‘Obama’ that definitely needs to be corrected, otherwise the extreme right that despise having an African-American as their President feel vindicated……..
