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.”)
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?
