 Feb 18 - White House Press Corps: 'Extreme Frustration' With Lack Of Obama Access
topic by Ham Rove - 02-18-2013, 08:18 PM


The White House press corps expressed "extreme frustration" at the Obama administration Sunday after it was barred from being able to report on President Obama's golf outing with Tiger Woods.

The reporters who cover Obama every day were kept well away from the president as he hit the links. However, Tim Rosaforte, a writer for Golf Digest and Golf World, did get some access to the golfer-in-chief, and happily tweeted the event exclusively for hours.

The White House pool report, which was written by Agence France-Presse reporter Tangi Quemener and was posted at BuzzFeed and other outlets, expressed the mounting anger of the press corps:

We got confirmation at 1:45 PM that POTUS had been hitting the links with Tiger Woods inside the "Floridian" golf compound, 20 minutes away from the pool hotel. Your pool has been aware since this morning that a reporter, Tim Rosaforte, had been tweeting and talking on the Golf Channel about the POTUS/Woods game from inside the compound. Still officially under a lid, we decided to a.ssemble and at 2:10 PM we logged a request to the White House for access to the President's game for a photo-op, like this administration and previous ones have granted in the past. We were told that we were free to travel to the Floridian but wouldn't get access to POTUS. After some back and forth, our handlers finally arrived at 4:17 PM and our bus was on the move quickly afterwards. We reached the Floridian's gates at 4:37. We're holding outside the compound and we're told that the President is not moving out of the Floridian and that the lid is still in place.
Ed Henry, the Fox News reporter who is president of the WHCA, issued a stern statement protesting the exclusion:

Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents a.ssociation, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend. There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to f!ght for today and in the days ahead: transparency.
Josh Earnest, the deputy press secretary for Obama, replied that the treatment was, to use a phrase, par for the course:

"The press access granted by the White House today is entirely consistent with the press access offered for previous presidential golf outings. It's also consistent with the press access promised to the White House Press Corps prior to arrival in Florida on Friday evening."

The White House press corps has often complained in the past about its level of access to Obama.

Smart move by Obama. Don't let them see you playing so they don't lead stories off with a pic of you hitting a golf ball. We can excuse Basketball as exercise but Golf is just wasteful expense of time so for this Obama is smart.

Obama being petty as usual; but rather quaint, considering other events worth protesting.

Numerous denials of FOIA requests, for instance.

you laugh but the fact that the president straight up broke the law, sh*tted on the constitutional powers set to prevent such overstepping of bounds, and appointed special interests to high ranking positions within our government doesn't bother you at all?

What planet are you on? If it was Bush, you'd be ready to crucify him.

So easily fooled by a darker face

i was just trying to bring attention the fact that the article was a month old. Not to mention looks like another bullsh*t source. That bi*ch who wrote that article is some tea party organizer. So I'm sure her observations on impeachment are very subjective
lets look @ some of the stuff shes written



The "give me free stuff" entitlement crowd, which includes most people who voted for Obama, are doing a great job of destroying the American economy. Capitalism provided a fabulous standard of living for a huge number of people working for corporations. Yet, Obama and the Democrats have messaged REPEATEDLY, that capitalism is a bad thing. They repeatedly demonize those who have succeeded.


these are the morons you trust with giving you the news?dont ever source this sh*t to me in a debate if you wanna be taken seriously.

They aren't going to impeach him, but if you wanna draw other conclusions from
what I said be my guest.
