The head of the most transparent administration in American history gave a speech at MIT Friday, but did so with conditions. Namely, there was a gag order on the entire event.
In a bizarre demand, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference apparently called for attendees of Obama’s speech, which took place inside the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, to keep it a secret.
“The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, will address the 2018 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference on February 23, 2018 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center,” a description of the ESPN-sponsored event says. “A lifelong sports fan and athlete, President Obama will address a wide range of subjects in his talk, from his most memorable moments in the White House, to his post-presidency plans.”
But attendees and members of the media were given a policy that requires them not to talk about it.
The order forbade photography, videotaping, and live streaming, as well as reporting of the speech’s content. The cuckolded media agreed to these ridiculous terms, because Dear Leader must be appeased.
