WH Holds Benghazi Briefing ... Off-the-Record

quote:

In the White House’s latest efforts at transparency, the administration announced to reporters that it would brief reporters on the latest shocking developments about the Benghazi situation … behind closed doors. Politico reports that the meeting started at approximately 12:45 PM ET, and that it moved the normal press briefing to 1:45 PM ET. Jay Carney, White House press secretary, did not comment on whether the meeting took place.

Reporters not invited to the off-the-record briefing are reportedly incredibly unhappy about it:

Meh. I don't really mind an off-the-record meeting as long as all of the different stations and entities were able to attend

ETA: just saw your edit...if they chose only specific reporters then my opinion changes...but how do we get a list of who was able to attend?

Carney's briefing has been pushed back again. Cancellation probably next.

Digging that hole deeper. I wonder if Fox news was invited to this or the wall street journal? I doubt it.

Looks like Obama is setting up a meeting to spread out his excuses er... i mean talking points, and a new round of deflection will occur.

This off the record briefing is probably a MSM cover up strategy meeting.

He better do that press conference or that will be the news cycle. What are they doing?

I'm assuming ABC is getting a wrist slapping and Sherryl Attkisson from CBS is no longer allowed at the white house.

How is this even possible...

What a dog and pony show. If you are going to address the Benghazi situation, do it on the record in front of the press.

Bull shite that they will more than likely float bull shite to see if it sticks and if it doesnt, they can say "Oh, well we didn't officially say that"

You know what this is? This is a White House meltdown. It's not limited to Fox and a few other conservative news sources, they have 2 mainstream cover media outlets not following the Regime's talking points.

it looks like they are late even to a cover-up session

unless something else comes out about this all's this is is the WH taking the heat off of Baghdad Carney and somehow non-answering the questions. or they are downright biding their time to come up with a new BS story.

Obama just had a pre-scheduled public appearance. I imagine that factored into the timing.

I wish there were more. They started the conference like normal, then stopped it and then had this closed door meeting.
