    So much for transparency, is Carney the son of Baghdad Bob? Wow, just wow. Fat white liberals must always have their way.

    Spurrier does this sort of thing during his pressers and it makes national news for a LONG time. Carney does it, crickets.

    CORRUPTION RULES!!!!!

    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/fox-news...fing-after-jay-carney-ignores-him-twice/?dtoc

    From the link:

    At Wednesday’s impromptu press conference, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney gave President Obama a list of reporters to call on that did not include a single television reporter. During Friday afternoon’s late-starting daily briefing, Carney went deep into the briefing without calling on Fox News’ Ed Henry, and ignored Henry’s attempts to ask a question until Henry finally gave up, walking out of the briefing’s final minutes.

    Carney’s snub of TV reporters Wednesday followed recent sharp exchanges with some TV reporters, particularly Ed Henry, whom Carney repeatedly posed as a partisan opponent. At Friday afternoon’s long-delayed briefing, Carney had gone through every TV reporter when Ed Henry began to ask his question. He got out “Jay…” before Carney called on The Chicago Tribune‘s Christi Parsons, and as she asked her question, Henry could be seen shaking his head.

    Henry tried again on the next question, and when Carney ignored him again, Henry smiled, got up, and walked out.

    While Fox News hasn’t always gotten a question at presidential press conferences, this was the first time in memory that a Fox News reporter wasn’t called on at a daily briefing.

    Fox is the only network not bought and paid for by the Marxist regime.

    That's why liberals hate them.

    Usually reporters stick together and will defend fellow colleagues against this type of behavior. Just waiting for the Bush administration did this too response. But if Bush's press secretary had done this, who would he have called on?

    Carney is a child. His boss is a child. Their childishness will be a crowdpleaser amongst other children.

    Hilarious.

    Bush holds only like 10 press briefings in 8 years and ONLY calls on Fox and right wing outlets, but Obama skips Fox ONCE and gets called out.

    So you are saying Bush did not have the daily press briefings, which this is about?

    You are saying that during the daily press briefings only the right was called on?

    I hope this poster is simply being sarcastic. It is difficult to see sarcasm in posts sometimes.

    pathetic that people defend this administration. freedom of the press is being eliminated and they are supporting this violation of constitutional rights. when the gubmnt is corrupt it is the press that is supposed to keep us informed and hold gubmnt accountable. what now?? one step closer to reaching a boiling point

    As bizarre as it sounds, it does seem to be his claim.

    I googled presidentially press conferences and GWB had 89 total press conferences his first four years in office and BO had 78. Obama did not only skip Fox, he skipped all the major tv networks. The OP was about Baghdad Carney not calling on the Fox reporter. As usual, when not supported by facts, make some up.

    0 hates anybody who disagrees with him or dares to have the audacity to question his opinion. It is a sure sign of an insecure narcissist. True leaders like challenges as it gives them the format to explain and justify their positions or adjust them as needed

    Let's see 45 million Americans watched the marxist regime's publicity machine of CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and MSNBC during the debates. And this doesn't count the left wing ownership of the major newspapers in America.

    10 million watched Fox.

    And yet, the liberals continually whine about Fox.
