    Jay Carney Blasts White House Press Corps

    In a conversation with New York Times Magazine on Wednesday, he criticized the melodramatic nature of the reporters he faced off against, going so far as to wonder what value the White House Press Corps has at all.

    “It can be surreal at the podium when you go down that front row and you have an exchange with one of the reporters in which there's very emotional — maybe even theatrical — presentation and back and forth, and then you go to the next reporter and you have the same thing, as if the first one didn't happen at all,” he said. “You begin to wonder how valuable a service to the nation that is in the end.”

    “If you look at the difference in tenor between the on-camera briefings and the on-the-record-but-off-camera gaggles, it's night and day.”

    I haven't made any decisions about what combination of things I'm going to be doing,” Carney said. “I'm not going to go back to being a journalist full time
    you pretty much blew any credibility to go back there again...

    going so far as to wonder what value the White House Press Corps has at all.
    much like you nothingness " I refer you to" non answers have no value

    Good, it's about time. They've been little but jokes for as long as I can remember paying attention. Usually three questions, over and over and over from each partisan side. So even if twenty are called on, the most you can hope for is that six usually incredulous, emotion-laced, presumptive questions are answered.

    No, I'd like a press corpse to do it's job. Not get stuck on the same question over and over, particularly one's that only serve their network's agenda and do not appear to serve any other purpose.

    BTW, if that's what you got from my post, you have reading comprehension issues.

    you'd have to give an example, but it's more trying to dig out anything other then the spin or lack of info provided by the administration.

    "press secretary" is a misnomer, it's more diversion/deflections of legitimate questions

    Please feel free to watch some, I'm sure they are online somewhere. I'm here to opine about what I've seen, not waste my time trying to educate those that resist information contrary to their pundit masters.

    Are you just heckling people responding to the OP or do you have some sort of links to provide that are on topic, since you seem to think links are important to proving an opinion, where are the links to prove your perception/opinion, apparently, that the press corps is worthwhile?

    And you didn't ask me a question, you demanded an exertion of time and energy to do something for you that you can do yourself.

    the OP is Carney excoriating the press corp for "emotional, theatrical, back and forth." My take on it is the press corp is treated like a bothersome nuisance the administration has to deal with.
    Continuously side stepping the questions with contempt for the truth is poorly portrayed as righteous indignation,

    I actually read the whole article. He comes off as a guy just telling people what his job was like and some of the frustrations. And not surprising is the GOPers can not understand that.
