Reporter: WH Press Secretary
Gets Questions from Reporters
Before Press Briefing

Weekly Standard, by DANIEL HALPER

Original Article

Posted By:Not your typical New Yorker, 3/20/2014 9:10:17 AM

A CBS reporter from Arizona reveals that President Obama´s press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing. In fact, she says, the reporters often receive the answers in advance of the briefing, too. According to the reporter, Jay Carney told her this yesterday at the White House:(snip)"And then he also mentioned that a lot of times, unless it´s something breaking, the questions that the reporters actually ask -- the correspondents -- they are provided to him in advance. So then he knows what he´s going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents

Just another "staged" performance.

It´s all scripted, just like the teleprompter.

It´s because their candid remarks gets them in trouble.

It doesn´t surprise me at all. So much for transparency.

A. Pre-asked questions means that Jay Smarmy can select those he wishes to give his condescending answers to.

B. Pre-answered responses from Jay Smarmy increases reporter efficiency by allowing them to write both a smokescreen article defending Obama and an article praising the Mooch. Since newspapers are dying, this efficiency is most appreciated by publishers.

C. Reason Jay Smarmy is leaving his WH job is that he is tired of doing the news media job for them. "They don´t even include me in the by-line, let alone pay me."

IMHO, I think the "WH Briefing" is a bad joke and it has been especially laughable since Clinton. The press secretary is there to make President whoever look good and to shield the bad. It is not about keeping Americans informed, as Dana Perino likes to say.

I´m with #11 on this inasmuch as these little seances seem to be mostly about protecting President Whomever from being ambushed on a daily basis...but I would still like to hear a reasonably honest PressSec like Dana Perino explain how it was conducted during her years in the job.

But having said that I don´t know how to explain Scott McClellan who seemed to be surprised and unprepared for every question the WH press threw at him.

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

WASHINGTON — Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to arrive in the United States sometime early Friday, a senior Pentagon official said Thursday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the news was not authorized to be released publicly. Bergdahl has been treated at the military hospital at Landstuhl Germany, after he was released by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after five years as a captive. The swap of five Taliban leaders detained at Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl, who went missing from his post in Afghanistan in 2008, has prompted outrage on Capitol Hill.

Talking today with law enforcement officials at the White House, President Obama said changes to immigration law is necessary "for our safety and security." "Our broken immigration system makes it harder for our law enforcement agencies to do their job," Obama said. "Our system is not fair to workers, is not fair to businesses and and is not fair to law enforcement agencies." Via the White House pool report: Mr Obama spoke to a group of "law enforcement leaders" in the Eisenhower Office building, for about ten minutes,starting at 12.00. See below for WH list of attendees.

Mets fans greeted Mayor de Blasio with hearty Bronx cheers on Monday, before he left early on the Amazins’ bitter Opening Day loss. Donning a pinstripe home white jersey and blue Mets cap over dress pants, de Blasio was loudly booed twice by Flushing faithful — once as he was announced and then again as he left the Citi Field diamond. The wave of boos didn’t get to de Blasio, who kept his cool, kicked and delivered from just in front of the pitcher’s mound.

Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm´s elder brother, is a physician who helped design ObamaCare and has been one of its most intense champions. So you may be surprised to learn that in his new book, "Reinventing American Health Care," he predicts that tens of millions more Americans will lose their medical plans in the coming decade. In its "You´re the Boss" small-business blog, the New York Times quotes his prediction that by 2025, "fewer than 20 percent of workers in the private sector will receive traditional employer-sponsored health insurance."

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
