""Press Briefing Room Revolts Against Jay Carneys Replacement in Testy Exchange Over Ducking Questions""

Earlier in the briefing, Earnest took a question from Jon-Christopher Bua, a Huffington Post columnist, about whether President Barack Obama had spoken to European leaders, in a question that dealt with Iraq.
In what was the last formal question of the briefing, Bloomberg reporter Roger Runningen asked about a call that morning between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
When veteran journalist Bill Plante commented that Earnests response offered a buried nugget of news, Earnest shot back that it took Rogers nose for news to ask.
Hi everybody...I’m Josh Earnest, Emperor Obama’s new butt monkey...Now I’ll take questions from you pee-ons...
It’s about time. These reporters need to realize their job is to sell the White House’s message to their readers, not think for themselves. They need to get back in line and do their jobs.
Obama has 3 more to go through to equal Clinton and Bush. Kinda surprised that Obama has only gone through 2 in six years.
Yes, of course the White House Press Team is revolting.
Everyone already knew that!
Without reference to the parties involved, one would conclude that Obama was better at picking out people with thick skins and little conscience. Although, as compliant as the WH press corps is (”corpse” really would fit in this case :) I don’t think the thick skin is really needed.
They exchange a Clown for a Pr!@&.
It is certainly the case with Jay Carney. I was absolutely shocked by the absolute zero moral authority he possessed. He might be the best liar I have seen (besides Obama). If he runs for politics, he might actually be successful.
What’s wrong with the WH press corps?
Not enough hot dogs and water pistols at Biden’s party for the media?
It will take a long time and a lot of work for the mainstream media to gain any credibility.
These journ-o-lists are in bed with Obama. They have absolutely no reason to complain about the “perfume” Obama’s spokesperson is wearing to his press conference. The journ-o-lists will take what Obama gives them to say and like it!
Seems all of His Arrogance’s paid liars are haughty and aloft.
The White Hut press ‘corpse’ needs a Sam Donaldson. He hassled Reagan and his press secretary on a daily basis.
“Everyone already knew that!”
“Everybody knows that”
Did you see the blown kiss?
