The WSJ Gets it Right

In today’s Wall Street Journal, there was a small write-up about how Obama seemed to have the reporters pre-screened for questions during his Monday night “media event.” It was very obvious what was going on. Obama kept looking and asking for specific journalists (if that’s what they still want to call themselves).

This isn’t the first time Obama has done this with
media events.

When Obama took his obligatory trip to Iraq and Afghanistan, there was no press pool. There were no press conferences. The only journalists on the ground were from the military. Of course, they may be able to ask more pressing questions than the lapdogs in the White House press pool.

At least the Journal brought this up, even if it was a day later than I did.
