    "press secretary" is a misnomer, it's more diversion/deflections of legitimate questions
    Carney makes "Baghdad Bob" seem reasonable.

    Re: Jay Carney Blasts White House Press Corps

    Carney views his job:

    What I really reject — and would have rejected as a reporter covering this place — is this notion that whether a reporter is successfully doing his job depends on information he is being handed through the front door from the White House
    I can only read that (OP link) that press secretary's briefings are not noteworthy enough for a reporter to use as a story.

    I agree but for a different reason that the information wasn't given to be reported, as much as to placate the reporters. Pro forma briefings as it were.

    Again, if that's what you get from my post, then you have a comprehension disability.

    So you're incensed because he won't talk out his ass about things he's not informed on? Lions, and tigers, and bears, Oh MY! He's the Whitehouse Press Secretary, not the Press Secretary for China, or the Pentagon, or.... any of the other places journalists should be going for accurate answers to those questions. The idiocy of having numerous people ask the question that's already been referred to other and more direct information when it's clear he's not going to say anything else is stupid, I believe there's even a saying about stupid being continually doing the same thing and expecting a different result. So they are stupid, lazy because they want Jay Carney, or whomever the press secretary is, to do their investigative work for them. F' that. Like I said to start with and your video only proves me true, Jay Carney is right, the White House Press Corps are a bunch of partisan clowns, with few exceptions, who are also lazy and stupid.

    there is some validity to carney's criticisms. the chasing the same soccer ball down the field metaphor rings true, as a number of reporters seem not to have as much of a desire to report political insights as they do to generate a 'gotcha' moment
    but my sense is the biggest problem was jay carney's substantial liability. to be most effective in that presidential spokesmodel position, he must be both the smartest guy in the room, and show up with a command of the facts. he wasn't. he didn't

    Right because that worked so well for say... Susan Rice who repeated what the other agencies were telling was most likely, and everyone was soooo happy about that. But of course, righties complain no matter what choices are made by anyone in this administration or anyone to the left of Putin.

    Yeah, like ask the president real questions, vice licking his ass?
