    I wonder if Fox and ABC had a seat at the table.

    Carney has now stated that the briefing was considered "deep-background", not off the record, which means the 14 reporters invited can now use information in their articles by stating "White House source(s)".

    I suspect that those not invited to the party are going to be pissed.

    Of course not. Fox isn't "mainstream"

    A reporter can report what is said in an off the record briefing if they so desire. They still have freedom of the press. They just won't be allowed back in the WH at most.

    If by "mainstream" you mean carrying water for Obama on a daily basis, then right you are. But FNC is in the news line up of every other "MSM" source, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC...

    I think what you mean to say is that you don't like FNC because you like your news to ideologically agree with your point of view.

    The off-the-record session was announced to reporters in the wake of an ABC News report showing that White House and State Dept. officials were involved in revising the now-discredited CIA talking points about the attack on Benghazi.

    so why off the record? what was the purpose of the meeting ? is it so the media can coordinate the WH talking points with each other? is it so they can all perform the same spin to make this go away

    Just more proof we have a state run media
    the handlers of the president have to find a way to control the narrative about benghazi in the press.

    this is a good way to do so, off the record meeting.

    By "mainstream", you must mean "bought and paid for".

    If Fox wasn't allowed in, this is the biggest admission of guilt yet.
