Reporter: WH Press Secretary Gets Questions from Reporters Before Press Briefing It's just a show. Daniel Halper March 20, 2014 8:43 AM
A CBS reporter from Arizona reveals that President Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing. In fact, she says, the reporters often receive the answers in advance of the briefing, too.
According to the reporter, Jay Carney told her this yesterday at the White House:
"It was a very busy day. We started here shortly after 8 o'clock with a coffee with press secretary Jay Carney inside his office in the West Wing," says the reporter.
"And this was the off-the-record so we were able to ask him all about some of the preparation that he does on a regular basis for talking to the press in his daily press briefings. He showed us a very long list of items that he has to be well versed on every single day.
"And then he also mentioned that a lot of times, unless it's something breaking, the questions that the reporters actually ask -- the correspondents -- they are provided to him in advance. So then he knows what he's going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents and reporters also have those answers printed in front of them, because of course it helps when they're producing their reports for later on. So that was very interesting."
The reporter, from a local CBS Arizona affiliate, interviewed President Obama yesterday.
I believe it’s the reporters who are given the questions in advance.
This is the sort of crap they would do in the USSR. Potemkin village press conferences.
“O” gets the test questions BEFORE the exam ... and STILL flunks?!!
Scumbag propagandist “media”... this POS administration... everything nowadays just seems worthless and despicable.
Does anyone think that this vacant wimp, Carney, could be press secretary for our Lyin’ King if he didn’t have the questions in advance? This is the least competent bunch that has ever held office in the history of America.
Reporter outlines this interview as “off the record” and then dishes out this nugget. She is going to get slammed. LOL.
Does the reporterette have a name?
Not if she wants to live.
Concealing information and evading questions. Its what Obama has done all his life.
The MSM allowed itself to be silenced. They were for it before they were against it.
“This is the sort of crap they would do in the USSR. Potemkin village press conferences.”
Yep.I don’t even recognize this country anymore. How could anyone who calls themselves a journalist in a free press ever put up with this? (rhetorical question; we all know the answer)
Yet Carney still looks like a bumbling fool.
Theatre for the morons who bother watching this crap. Journalism is DEAD.
Softball interview with Valerie Jarrett-approved questions?
Hey, it's not easy to have to stand up there and defend Obamacare, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS targeting the Tea Party, NSA targeting everybody, Obama's (in)actions in Syria, Ukraine, Afghanistan, and, last but not least, allowing Iran to become a nuclear power.
Socialists are all the same.
Nothing more than the rebuilding of the old ministry of propaganda in the old German workers Socialist party...
When dealing with the current White House Collection of Cretin/Felons, we aren’t exactly dealing with the sharpest knives in the drawer.
Yes, I agree. This revelation is only surprising in that I thought his poor answers were a result of being unprepared.
