Hopefully more people figure it out. So far I’m not optimistic.

From what I’ve read only certain media types (the most reliable ones) were invited ... many that were excluded are pissed. Not a smart move.

Boehner should go to the floor of the Senate and state that he has spoken to an unnamed source who attended the meeting. The source claimed that the media and the president were coordinating a media strategy to control Benghazigate.

Hehehehe...

It’ll be interesting to see how the reporters report after this....watch the body language too.

They may just go with the story for a time...to appear as if they are unbiased...and the Whitehouse admit some “errors”....either or this is going to get interesting to watch them squirm and dodge.

Yet more evidence of media/DNC collusion on “news” reporting.

For Obama to blame someone, they have to be either in on it, or powerless to defend themselves with help from the media.

That's why Susan Rice was selected. Sucker.

Great cartoon! But I doubt Obama is squirming....might have to do with what is currently happening in Benghazi with the US and Britain withdrawing personnel at this time....

I think Obama through back channels will try to make Hillary the fall guy (gal?). The Obama machine still controls the left wing of the Rat party and if necessary they will make
short work of her.

I bet the Obama machine has a ton of stuff on Hillary and Bill.

Lemme see...

(1) Brief reporters off-the-record.
(2) Send same reporters out to question Jay the Carney an hour later.

Are they afraid that the reporters have short-term memory problems that will prevent them from asking the questions they were told to ask?

I must say that the administration IS transparent, after all. This is very easy to see through!

Off the record means they can't report it.

Off the record information can be reported if corroborated by an attributed source.

Classified operations in Benghazi running weapons, and discussing it is forbidden because we were not running weapons to Syrian rebels while we were really running weapons to Syrian rebels.

So please don't ax any mo questions.

AprilDRyan ‏@AprilDRyan 40m This off the record briefing is not a partisan issue but a matter of journalism and getting true on the record quotes for reports. AprilDRyan ‏@AprilDRyan 45m @DanaPerino i was not in there and no on refused when you and Ari did it. AprilDRyan ‏@AprilDRyan 29m I am so unsettled about this.

“off the record briefing” - so a private, secret meeting with the press. Literally, the press is having a strategy session with the White House on how to counteract the negative light this shines on the administration.

We have no free press - they are voluntarily doing the bidding of the government as loyal Democrat party activists.

It should be interestng, and it was definitely pretty brazen to hold any sort of off-the-record meeting between the WH and the lap dog media at this point.

Rush mentioned a press briefing that was supposed to take place at first, I think, 1:45 eastern, and then later, that still hadn't taken place. Maybe the same gathering that turned out to be off-the-record.

I get the feeling that they are setting this up so that they will admit to a cover up but that they had a good reason to do it. They are going to claim that the cover up was necessary as part of some national security issue that they can’t talk about because it involves sensitive national security issues (like gun running to the terrorists).

They called the press together to try to sell them on the idea so they will all be on the same page when the SHTF. .
