What’s the deal with the White House press corps?
That’s what WTOP Political Commentator Mark Plotkin wants to know.
Plotkin is challenging the status quo in his morning commentary.
His commentary is transcribed below:
Last night the President had a press conference. But where was the press? I know they were sitting in their designated seats politely waiting to be selected to ask a question.
They all know the drill. The president has prepared for him a short list of the annointed few. They get to stand up, speak in the microphone and have their 15 seconds of fame.
I don’t fault the President for trying to control the press. But I ask you, why does the press go along?
