Mediaite ^ | 10/5/11 | Tommy Christopher

At Wednesday’s White House daily briefing, Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney to respond to a report that a White House official had “screamed and cussed at” CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson, over the unfolding Fast and Furious story. Carney said he didn’t know about that specific conversation, but elaborated in his response that, in general, “hard-bitten journalists” ought to be able to handle “tough conversations” and “an extra decibel or two in a phone conversation.”

Imagine a Republican speaker telling this to the press, there’d be hell to pay.

Lol, no matter how you spin it Carney, you know the White House was in a frenzy over the matter and see-bs told the world about it.

the question is not whether a reporter can handle the frenzied outburst, but rather, why was there a frenzied outburst (not to mention is it professional and appropriate).

Yes Jay, the press needs to toughen up. They need to stop being such wimps and really start to get though with these idiots in the administration.

“What a punk.”

Yeah, and I’ll bet he’d be just the guy to toughen them up.

The reporters should get together for a little “atomic wedgie” re-education.

And say that the lone person actually doing any investigating is “unreasonable” - right before going out and telling everybody how “transparent” you want to be.

Well, they are transparent quite by accident. Is there anybody left on the globe who can’t see them for the bucket of spit they are?

If Ms. Attkisson had any gumption she would introduce Mr. Carney’s gonads to the tip of her shoe as she severely berates him for his ungentleman-like behavior toward her noble profession.

Now that's funny on several levels.

You can always tell when they have been caught and are guilty ... they raise their voices and scream obsenities at you. Do you think the Carney Barker would “toughen up” if one of the reporters grew a pair and tried the same trick on him ... hell no, he would be bawling like a baby calling for his mother.

I’ll stick with Carnivals since Obama’s spokesman is a Carney.
