Skip to comments.Which White House reporters had lunch with Obama?

Reporters wouldn't say Thursday who joined President Obama for an off-the-record lunch at the White House.
The Upshot noted the irony that news organizations have been at the forefront of the fight to make White House visitor logs public. Not to mention the fact that the names of those who visit the White House in August will be made available to the public by November anyway.
But who wants to wait until November? The Upshot has now learned which White House beat reporters attended the off-the-record meeting.
Here's the lineup: Ben Feller (Associated Press), Jonathan Weisman and Laura Meckler (Wall Street Journal), Michael Shear and Scott Wilson (Washington Post), Caren Bohan (Reuters), David Jackson (USA Today), Carol Lee (Politico), Peter Nicholas (Tribune Co.), Margaret Talev (McClatchy) and Julianna Goldman (Bloomberg).
Several reporters on this list gave "no comments" to The Upshot on Thursday.

...and Glenn Beck from Fox.
Guess we know who some of the “pals” are?
I would think that the swallowers were the ones that had lunch with Stroker.
The dirty dozen?
"No quetions please, we are the press , but our lips are sealed until he tells us what to say?"
The MSM are SUCH idiots.
Bleating sheep, doing the plantation shuffle and pirouette!
All so they can get the imperial Obama fascist handouts, like dogs on short leashes, standing on their hind legs for a small piece of dog biscuit.
SHAME ON THEM...... THEY ARE NOT THE PRESS!
Frankly, I wouldn’t want to be in the same room with Obama, much less sit down and have lunch with him.
Does it really matter?
They are all sycophants so what’s the question?
that was funny!
Neither would I. Something about Obama draws flies to him & that would totally ruin my lunch!!!
We can only wonder who(Dr.Goebbels)asked to lunch with” Der Fuehrer”?
Obama was probably giving them instructions to begin using the phrase, “Professional left”. They can’t afford to have them be identified as “Marxists”.
FDR successfully stroked the press for favorable coverage, too.
Ah that wonderful, ascetic, vegeterian socialist from Germany, who brought Germany out of a deep recession..
( sorry. just quoting a 1940 encyclopedia...)
It’s amazing how a little time and perspective changes your view of someone. Obama’s news lackey’s. Pravda’s editors would be proud of them.
They sold their souls for a fancy lunch?
George Bush discussed his policies with conservative radio hosts last month at the White House, including, from left, Mike Gallagher, Neal Boortz, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Michael Medved.
This is news? I always knew these people were out to lunch.....
Reporters report to Obama for an off-the-record instructions for November election game plans,lunch to ensue.
They sold their souls for a fancy ideology.
Let’s see. Is it surprising that any of the “journalists” from the following went?
Wall Street Journal
The only surprise for me is that **The New York Times** isn’t on the list. Apparently they didn’t like the idea of it being off the record? Now that IS a surprise.
