    White House holds OFF-THE-RECORD briefing with reporters on Benghazi

    The White House held an off-the-record briefing with reporters on Friday afternoon to discuss recent revelations about the Benghazi investigation, sources familiar with the meeting tell POLITICO.

    The meeting began around 12:45 p.m. and postponed the daily, on-the-record White House press briefing to 1:45 p.m. White House press secretary Jay Carney did not respond to a request for confirmation of the meeting.

    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

    What's the point of an off the record briefing to the media? They can't do anything overt with the information.....

    A better question would be: WTF is an off-the-record briefing??

    Anything that is discussed in the meeting can not be reported on it has to be kept from the public

    It's where the state run press gets it instructions on how to handle the Benghazi Debacle.

    Maddow, Matthews and Shultz are on the front row, I'm sure.

    It's the start of one of their stories, you know, the ones that go "a senior White House source today would not confirm on the record but hinted that President Obama can, indeed, turn water into wine".

    I think it's going to be more along the lines of,

    "It was confirmed, in an off the record breifing, that everything the whistleblowers are saying is a lie".

    secrets, secrets, so many secrets

    did you know that david rhodes is the brother of ben rhodes, the white house national security adviser for communications, whose many emails (now in the possession of evil darrell issa) tell the underlings at the cia exactly what they must and what they must not tell the american people is the truth

    david rhodes is president of cbs news

    David Rhodes - CBS News

    so why is cbs leaning so hard on sharyl attkisson?

    Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, a persistent voice of media skepticism on Benghazi - The Washington Post

    Sharyl Attkisson in talks to leave CBS - POLITICO.com

    ask the brothers rhodes

    this coverup is attempting now to extend its secrecy and concealment even BEYOND the multi level departments and agencies of the executive branch and into the realm of the television sets in our own living rooms

    richard nixon must admire them their work, these masters of muggery---except they got caught

    oh well

    party on, progressives

    it's gonna be a very long year

    Which begs to ask the question: why tell the media if they can't do anything with the information?

    I would guess it's to give them marching orders. I mean it. I no longer trust the press. Frankly? I think Fox is doing a good job reporting. I don't watch or listen to their infotainment -- just read the news on their website. It's one of the few. I'm more apt to get good information on Drudge them I am from major network news.

    We're in trouble, folks. We really are.
