White House Press Corps pushes Carney for real answers

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Since the White House scandals begin to break a few weeks ago there have been brief moments of honest journalism scattered across the mainstream media. As the DOJ’s tapping of journalists with the AP, Fox News, CBS emerged, journalists entrenched with the mainstream media awkwardly found themselves on opposing ends of the Obama administration.

After 5 years of this White House, multiple members of the White House Press Corps finally stood their ground against the Press Secretary. Jay Carney found himself pinned down on a Holder lie regarding the DOJ scandal with no way to get free…so he caved.


Ed Hentry:  On the say quoted, this is not something I’ve ever been
involved in, heard of.  We know he was involved in it at the very
least.  Was he not telling the truth on that point?

Jay Carney:  Involved in what?

Ed Henry:  He signed off on a search warrant.  Are you not involved.
Refer you to the Justice Department.  You guys are inflating the
subpoena with prosecution, and I think it is — again, what the
attorney general said. Technical accuracy you’re holding onto?

Jay Carney:  I’m not.  I’m saying based on what I’ve seen in published
report and what the attorney general said, I don’t see a conflict, but
I refer you to the justice department.

“Are you blind?” Glenn asked after hearing the audio, wondering how he could possibly claim not to be able to see the conflict with Holder.

“Why are we accepting this?  We — they would never accept this from us,” Glenn noted. “They would never accept this in a private company, they would never accept anybody, if the press were there, to get answered, what is going on
with your company.”

“If they don’t play by the same exact rules, if there is not equal justice for all,” Glenn added. “See that’s what Martin Luther King was all about, equal justice for everybody. I just want an equal shot. I want equal justice.”

    Carney was cornered and caved, then another journalist came to his salvation and changed the direction of the conversation. When an adversary is on the ropes, finish it once and for all.

    It has been entertaining to finally see this White House beat up by the press.

      But they have not really beat up the White House, it’s like a child trying to walk, they act like they can do it, then fall down again and again.

    Ben Ghazi ,Ben Ghazi, Ben Ghazi.  Don’t be distracted.  Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and even Israel with their new found Nat Gas in the Med. need a place either through Syria or Iraq to get it into /turkey and over to Europe.  Russia wants Europe depending on Russia for the nat gas.
    When Obama leaves office just watch and see where the cash for his speaking engagements comes from, not to mention money for his library.  Follow the money.

      I know you meant “liars” but since I sometimes wonder what terrible creature lives inside each of their skins, it’s funny to me that you said “lairs” 😀

    Just watching Carney with all the questions of late is a defining of “a rock, and a hard place”.

    What a joke, like the “press” is ever going to hold this administration’s feet to the fire. Just when you think they might actually do it, their balls crawl back up their ass and they chicken out.

    You ever notice how appropriate the  Press Secretary names are?  We had Snow…  (snow-job)
    now it’s Carney ….. a Carney is someone who works for a carnival or circus they usually tend the games that are rigged to cheat anyone foolish enough to play….. seems to fit this administration….. 

    I like the Urban dictionary version of Carney :
    A desperate person who survives through trickery and the eating of human flesh. They have no life or soul and can be found in trailers, carnivals, and on a couch drinking GO2 Cola. Much like thiers zombie bretheren they can only be killed by cutting of thier head or destroying their brain.So what would one expect a Carney to say……

    The press needs to ask the tough questions. It seems to me that it’s taking them too long to react. Perhaps the problem is because they’ve been asleep…they might say that they haven’t practiced on how to do it. Somebody needs to motivate them. Any ideas???

  • landofaahs

    Was that press corps with a definite pronunciation on the p in corps….Frankly the modern press is a corpse.

    I think it is long over do for people to start calling him by his actual name, “Jay Blarney”.
