The Impending Thugocracy

According to the Orlando Sentinel, here's what happens when a reporter asks questions not approved by The Chosen One:
Biden so disliked [WFTV-Channel 9 anchor Barbara] West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was "a result of her husband's experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West."
Here's the interview in which the questioner became uppity:
