White House holds 'deep background' Benghazi briefing
by DYLAN BYERS
5/10/13 1:54 PM EDT
The White House held a "deep background" briefing with reporters on Friday afternoon to discuss recent revelations about the Benghazi investigation, sources familiar with the meeting tell POLITICO.
The meeting was conducted on "deep background," according to White House spokesman Josh Earnest, but sources told POLITICO that the existence of the meeting was "off the record." The meeting began around 12:45 p.m. and postponed the daily, on-the-record White House press briefing until mid-afternoon.

Hummmm, "deep background" they say... but we got the outtakes from the off-the-record one given to CNN--
I am going to turn this over to Jay... so I can have deniability with complete and total immunity--
Okay, here is what you need to do and say... to make this go away?
Now, Jay, can't I just do what I did to Romney in the debates... lie my ass off?
If you have the strength to move all that fat... do just that, Candy.
Can we play... the race card, Jay?
Hell yes, Roland! They are Republicans bringing up these questions... and we always make anything they say racist--
And don't forget to turn anything the Republicans say... as also being anti-gay and lesbian.
Nancy is so right... we have to keep our gay folk in lockstep in putting this Benghazi crap back in the closet.
Oh, Jay! "Benghazi crap back in the closet--" I... just love your gay humor!
Yes, yes, yes! That's funny... so, so funny!
Anderson, Carol, we like to see you laugh. It makes us so happy... to see you happy.
Jay, can I make it seem to speak of Benghazi... a serious medial problem that may cause death or dismemberment?
Good idea, Sanjay! Hit the death part... really hard.
Now, Wolf... what is you question?
Really hard, tee hee! You said... really hard!
Wolf, try to get sober... before you broadcast later today, okay?
Jay, Jay? Can I thrown in some gun control? Like... if our guys in Benghazi didn't have any guns, they would have die quietly and we wouldn't have any problem today.
That is a great point, Piers, but... we are getting our ass kicked on gun control right now, so keep that thought for later this year after Benghazi is swept totally under the rug.
Now finally, you have a question... David?
Yes, Jay, can I tell my MSNBC pals... what CNN is going to say so we can coordinate?
Hey, we are all jerking off the American people... the same way all the time, so sure.
Well, enoy campers... you heard it here--
I’d like to see a list of the ‘reporters’ that were invited to that briefing.
That's like, what ?
1245-1300 ... get settled in, etc.
1300-1500 ... (2 hrs)
What's "mid afternoon" ?
2 hrs for
background ... um .... talk.
Did he make tee time ?
I bet Fox wasn’t invited.
“deep background” translates to cover our collective asses and lie like cheap muslim prayer rugs.
I want to see a list of names, who are these “trusted reporters” that should be public information...
Funny stuff. And you’re right, “deep background” must be some new euphemism for coordinating the coverup.
Great Post Bender. One of the best I have seen here in a long time.
You nailed them.
I think they ran the Spokesboy through a mock press conference.
“Id like to see a list of the reporters that were invited to that briefing.”
It would look like the credits on a porno flick.
Time to open hearings on the articles of impeachment, Bender2.
will the house of cards crumble? Its very difficult to continue the lies with so many involved.
The fact that Carney (AKA the love child of Doogie Howser and Baghdad Bob) got his arse kicked in the press conference tells me the “deep background” theme did not have its desired effect.
Later this week...comes the deep-deep background brief.
Then by next Saturday....comes the deep-deep-deep background brief.
Then by next week....comes the deep-deep-deep-deep background brief.
Maybe by the next weekend? Yeah...the deep-deep-deep-deep-deep background brief.
Who is the deep-messenger?
Any person who thinks himself/herself a “credible ethical journalist” would have indignantly insisted the entire press corps assigned to the White House be present at this ‘collusion meeting’.
It is disgusting and reprehensible. And they (the collective evil ‘they’. Wring their hands and wonder why so many of us are so angry we are ready to take up arms and banish them.
Bender, mah man, how DID you manage to sneak into the WH press pre-brief like that?
That is what I was thinking. The press was still to nice to him.
No, not really. Fluffers don’t get in on the closing credits list.
to nice=too nice
TREASON - continuous, pre-meditated, agenda-driven, in-your-face, MEDIA-COMPLICIT, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, ongoing...
R.I.P. Doherty, Smith, Stevens, Woods.
Condolences to your families and to your friends.
Well they don’t want to lie on the record now do they?
Nice work Bender. BTTT!
..”deep background” meeting was held to remind the chosen media members that they TOO are up to their necks in it, since half of the population of America thinks their co-conspirators with the muslim infested WH.
It would look like the credits on a porno flick.
There are credits on porno flicks?
“Any person who thinks himself/herself a credible ethical journalist would have indignantly insisted the entire press corps assigned to the White House be present at this collusion meeting.”
On the plus side, someone divulged that this briefing occurred. Another snowflake in the avalanche.
Now, where did we hear of a “Deep (something)” before?
"Be strong my friends! This too will pass with your support and dedication to the Obama Administration."
Deep Cover in a press briefing? Sounds like a non sequitor to me.
LMAO....Well done!!..it could go on forever with every single liberal alive...
how about Hank Johnson explaining away why nobody was allowed in Benghazi to investigate the atrocities..
We were worried Libya would capsize if too many investigators were allowed in that small seaside resort...
The Obama administration treats the press like they are a bunch of monkeys.
“The press is asking some tough questions! What should we do?”
“Throw ‘em a banana.”
All you graphic artists...Have at it!
So, if 14 news organizations with an average of 5 people per attended as “deep cover,” What would that cost in hookers, drugs, botox and Swiss bank account deposits?
That deep “throat” meeting is equal to what happened at SCOTUS on January 14,2009 threats where everything and everywhere went MUTE and silent on the NBC issue all the way down from SCOTUS to the SCM!!!
I would vote for Retired Admiral James Lyon’s explanation as the most believable scenario that make true sense for a planned “October” surprise!!!
A false SHOW AND TELL full of lies.No wonder its “Off the Record.”
Finally, we have honest reporting and real journalism!!
That’s what happened on January 14, 2009 when the Chicago-GODFATHER-Thugs-likes, paying a “secret” visit at SCOTUS, whispering something soft in John Robert’s ears, “that IF...if, etc.,” enough that he later caved in on the obamaScare, hello!!!
UPDATE (3:05 p.m.): I asked Earnest to explain the meaning of “deep background,” as defined by the White House, for my readers. He emails:
“Deep background means that the info presented by the briefers can be used in reporting but the briefers can't be quoted.”
UPDATE (3:30 p.m.): White House press secretary Jay Carney addressed the meeting at today's public briefing. He said reporters from 14 news organizations were present, including television, print and online.
The purpose of this farce is to convince a select group of journalists that they are being given restricted or even classified information that will show that what appears to be unethical or illegal conduct by federal entities is actually actions taken in the furtherance of “national interests.”
And see, it's not a lie if everybody says it.
Get your latest White House spin here! Deep background meeting of selected members of the press!
