Probably a pre-selected reporter.

At this point I wouldn’t be shocked to see Obama put Jay Carney in the audience and call on him.

Might as well right??

What’s the difference between him and the reporters at the networks??

All you get is BS!!!

They probably competed for the “honor” to be called on by their god.

That US reporter will be sympathetic for sure. IF they can unlock his lips from Obama’s a$$ long enough to get the scripted question out.

Then why isn’t it presented as a PR campaign?

All hand picked, screened beforehand (to make sure there’s no conservative minded journalists in the bunch) and given a list if questions that are prohibited. Carney ordered not to make sad or frustrated faces or instant termination.../s

LOL, I was thinking something similar, but I guessed it would be Valerie Jarrett! :)

The reporter was chosen out of the pool who attended the closed-door off-the-record presser last week.

I’ll bet any of you lunch that the British reporter uses his question to ask Obama about Benghazi.

I nominate that the representative from the British press be someone from the Weekly Standard.

Well, the British press does a much better job at telling the truth than the US press so I hope the Brit reporter brings up the most uncomfortable subjects of Benghazi and IRS.

Look...if POTUS Obama does not confront Benghazi, The IRS scandal, etc. today at his press conference, he is headed out the door, either by Democrats forcing him to resign or, Obama being impeached. The man is both a crook and traitor to his country!!! Democrats and African-Americans, for obvious reasons better wise up quick and flush Obama down the toilet into the polluted cesspool where he and his anti-American cohorts belong!!! Hitler is alive and well in the Obama White House!!!

I won’t take that bet...

But, I’ll bet you Obama will give the following answer:

“We have an ongoing investigation on that, and for that reason I cannot comment.”

Sounds like something right out of 1984.

Normally two questions each per nation’s reporters—total of four—at such nation-to-nation press conferences. With an all- English language press corps today, Obama cutting chances of being hammered on IRS and Benghazi. Nixon, Reagan, Bushes would be lambasted by press for such manipulative cowardice.

Don’t forget Carney’s three-hour “off the record press conference” with selected reporters on Friday, clearly preparing for this.

Yep!!! It’s restricted, one question from a USA reporter and one question from a Britt. It’s a presser with the Prime Minister of England. You won’t be able to lay a glove on him!!! It’s a Hitler style presser, rigged from the getgo by Obama!!! However...the more he tries to hide from his treason, the worse he looks!!! My advice, resign or be impeached, Obama, you murderer, tyrant and traitor to the USA. our public servatns, our citizens and our beloved military!!! Knew exactly the piece of wasted humanity you are, the minute I saw you with Black racist, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, years ago!!!

And then there is the CBS News president and his brother that works for Obama as national security adviser.

There is another set of siblings but I forget them.

Come on man! You don’t need no stinking script. Just answer questions on the fly. You can do! They’ll have to listen to you. Use your gifted voice and convince America of the correctness of your position. Hey, I know! Blame the Republicans for how tired you were that night. You had to get up early the next morning to campaign, right? You told Leon and Hillary to deal with it and they f***ed everything up. It’s really their fault anyway. Forget your notes. You could have written better notes yourself, right? Your the man! Your the greatest! Go for it! Tell America you won’t rest until you find out who was supposed to be in charge of this crap! Oh please, oh please...

AFAIK These relationships ought to be attached to every link or source on FR so everyone sees the close personal relationship the author has to Members of the Administration when they write their BS and it is published as News...

Such as :Claire Shipman, ABC Reporter and WIFE of White House spokesperson Jay Carney

Pinging JR as a suggestion.

Smoke em out, expose them and their hidden agendas- All of them.

What I’d like to hear:

Fox News Rep.: “Mr. President. In regards to the attack in Benghazi on the evening of September 11, 2012 could you please tell America about your involvement in the decision making process as events unfolded? For instance, who made the call for American forces in the area to stand down? Also, at approximately what time were you able to retire for the evening?

http://www.lyricsreg.com/lyrics/steve+taylor/Meat+The+Press/

In a ninety-floor Manhattan address
Lives a watchdog called the National Press
And around the collar’s written the lines
‘The Protector Of Our Hearts And Minds”
Hark! Hark! The dog will bark
And we believe this hierarch
But read between the lines and see
This dog’s been barking up the wrong tree

Meet The Press

When the ratings point the camera’s eye
They can state the facts while telling a lie
And the watchdog shows to the viewers at ten
He’s a bloodhound with a pad and pen
Can’t pin the blame — he’s out of reach
Just call the dog ‘His Royal Leech’
We held the rights for Heaven’s sake
‘til we gave this sucker an even break

Meet The Press

When the Godless chair the judgement seat
We can thank the Godless media elite
They can silence those who fall from their grace
With a note that says ‘we haven’t the space’

Well lookee there — the dog’s asleep
Whenever we march or say a peep
A Christian can’t get equal time
Unless he’s a loony committing a crime
Listen up if you’ve got ears
I’m tired of condescending sneers
I’ve got a dog who smells a fight
And he still believes in wrong and right

Meat The Press
