Politico's John Harris Offers Advice for a Reporter Who Loves Obama: 'Down, Boy'

Politico editor-in-chief John Harris was on CNN’s Reliable Sources over the weekend and discussed the press’ love affair with Barack Obama:

Almost a couple years ago, you would send a reporter out with Obama, and it was like they needed to go through detox when they came back– ‘Oh, he’s so impressive, he’s so charismatic,’ and we’re kind of like, ‘Down boy.’

Earlier in the week, NBC’s Lee Cowan said “it’s almost hard to remain objective” when you’re covering Obama. Harris responded: “In any event, what Lee Cowan said, is it’s hard. OK, it’s hard. Do it. Detach yourself. Nobody cares about our opinions.”
