The NewsFlavor website has posted an interview between a man by the name of Ulsterman and an alleged 'Insider' who was exposed to Team Obama for some time. Here are some excerpts:
When I asked this insider if the media gave candidate Obama an assist throughout his campaign, it elicits a sly smile. Sure – we definitely had people in the media on our side. Absolutely. We went so far as to give them specific ideas for coverage. The ones who took that advice from the campaign were granted better access, and Obama was the biggest story in 2008, so yeah, that gave us a lot of leverage.How about those suspicions we have about Obama's obsession with Fox?
But after Obama was sworn in, things began to change? Almost immediately. Obama loved to campaign. He clearly didn’t like the work of being President though, and that attitude was felt by the entire White House staff within weeks after the inauguration. Obama the tireless, hard working candidate became a very tepid personality to us. And the few news stories that did come out against him were the only things he seemed to care about. He absolutely obsesses over Fox News. For being so successful, Barack Obama is incredibly thin-skinned. He takes everything very personally.Hillary?
What about Hillary Clinton? Obama is scared to death of Hillary. He doesn’t trust her – obsesses over her almost as much as he does Fox News. He respects her though, which might be why he fears her so much as well. He talks the game, but when it comes down to it, she has played the game on a far tougher level than he has, and Obama knows that.With an unnamed source, this type of reportage should be taken with a grain of salt but the claims made here do seem to match and explain the behaviors the public is exposed to when it comes to Obama.

UPDATE on 11/07/10: For some odd reason, the original part 2 link is dead. There is a new link but the date of the piece has changed to October 25th. At first blush it doesn't look good but when you click on the LINK that includes all of the interviews, the article is identified as having been published on September 15th - its original date. Ulsterman doesn't appear to be hiding anything and notes that Newsflavor re-published it on October 25th. In any event here is the new PART 2 link.
