President Obama has broken up with the White House Press Corps. He's just not that into them. Oh yes, he does interviews and he answers questions, but these are with pliant members and coached members of local media, in addition to "entertainment" venues such as the "Pimp with a Limp".
But the folks who go to the White House every day to cover the Administration? They get Jay Carney. Including the other day, when President Obama spoke to them about the tragedy in Libya, then turned tail to head to Nevada for fundraising. No questions.
Because we know the media is practiced in collusion, I have a recommendation for them. The White House Press Corps should go on strike. That is, they should simply refuse to cover the Administration--do not interview them, do not write about them, do not give them the reliable megaphone--until the President begins to deal with them in a more equitable manner.
Think we'll see this? Don't hold your breath. Most of the people in that Press Corps are doing heavy lifting for Obama's re-election.
