    HOWARD KURTZ, CNN: Bill Plante, you have been patrolling that building since Ronald Reagan. Does the White House press look self-involved and whiny, as I said earlier, complaining about this Tiger incident? BILL PLANTE, CBS NEWS: We have gotten used to being called whiny lap dogs. I've heard it for 30 years. But this is not about a picture of Tiger Woods. This is about access to the president. And access to the president has been cut and pushed and curtailed over every administration I've covered. Here's the nub of it, Howie, this administration has the tools to reach people...

    CBS News reporter Bill Plante challenged White House press secretary Jay Carney on President Obama’s statement Monday that for the Supreme Court to overturn the Affordable Care Act would be an “extraordinary, unprecedented step,” during a Thursday press briefing. BILL PLANTE: What he said on Monday was an obvious misspoken moment because he talked about the court not being in a position to overturn an of Congress— JAY CARNEY: Bill— PLANTE: You’re standing up there twisting yourself in knots, because he made a mistake and you can’t admit it. CARNEY: No, no, Bill, I am acknowledging that—you’re sharing in the...

    THE son of CBS White House correspondent Bill Plante is cooling his heels in a Martha's Vineyard jail cell for allegedly making a bomb threat, and cops are mystified as to the motive. Cops in Edgartown say John Patrick Plante, 51, a bon vivant who spends the winter in Santa Barbara, Calif., phoned them Oct. 14 to warn that an explosive device had been placed in a bar/restaurant called the Navigator. "We haven't quite figured out why, because it was a bomb threat to an empty building - the Navigator is a seasonal bar open only in the summer," a...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- A veteran CBS correspondent grilled the White House Tuesday about its role in delaying the publication of Richard Clarke's book critical of the Bush administration's handling of the al Qaeda threat before 9/11. CBS correspondent Bill Plante peppered Press Secretary Scott McClellan with questions concerning the security review process that books by former administration officials must undergo to ensure that classified material is not made public. Plante stated, "[Clarke] says that the book could have been published in December, but for the White House security review process." McClellan responded, "His book went through the normal review...
  • Donaldson & Plante Credit Reagan with Hastening End of Communism

    Time heals old animosities? Thursday night’s Hardball on MSNBC marked Ronald Reagan’s 93rd birthday with a look at his legacy. ABC’s Sam Donaldson declared: “I think he deserves credit for accelerating the fall of communism.” And CBS’s Bill Plante agreed: “What he did absolutely hastened the end of the Cold War.” The MRC’s Brad Wilmouth and Geoffrey Dickens both caught the admissions by the two network correspondents who covered the Reagan White House. The exchange, on the February 5 show, with host Chris Matthews: Matthews: “Is it your belief, Sam, as a straight reporter, an observer, do you think Ronald...

    Bernie Goldberg is back to spanking the liberal media, and guess what? His network targets still won't let him inside the door. Even after his first book, Bias, proved to be extremely popular, the networks have barred Goldberg and his new book, Arrogance, despite his predictions that he'd draw huge audiences. "I didn't think anything trumped ratings," he says, "but something does--ideology." His latest book, due out next month, is more than liberal baiting, though there's enough Dan Rather bashing to satisfy any dittohead starved by the absence of Rush Limbaugh during his drug dry-out. Goldberg offers a thoughtful 12-step...

    In a discussion related to comparing White House communications offices in Dem and GOP administrations, CBS News Chief White House correspondent Bill Plante said last week: "The media is mostly left-leaning. It is difficult to turn out graduates in majors relating to the media who are at the right of the political spectrum. So the media gets to be leaning to the liberal side. ...The Democratic party sees the media as their ally." Obviously he has not read the various temper tantrums thrown by the likes of Eric Alterman who insist the media is not liberal.
