The sad part? The fact that he has faced some actual questions is news, as Kirsten Powers points out.

What does it say that 5 years in, it’s a news story that WH press sec is getting tough questions? For 2 whole days! politico.com/blogs/media/20…

Asking a press secretary questions? That’s crazy talk! So cuckoo pants that now media outlets have made that the story.

Becoming unfettered at the seams. Reporters pummel WH press sec. Jay Carney with scandal questions. @washingtonpost: wapo.st/13vUsPZ

Heh.

Boo-hoo! His “tough day.”

DAY.

From Politico:

The first two years of his tenure as White House press secretary were a relative cake-walk: his talking points were solid, the issues were manageable, and the press corps was largely acquiescent.

Uh. You don’t see that as a problem? The lack of self-awareness is staggering.

@kirstenpowers10 It says that our liberty has been forfeited so that the press core can party with Obama andmaybe get intro to Jayz/ beyonce

@kirstenpowers10 @jammiewf It says that the press has a serious identity crisis they are NOT dealing with…..

@kirstenpowers10 The lapdogs were dozing for five years.

It says the lapdog media recused itself. “@kirstenpowers10: What does it say that 5 years in … WH press sec is getting tough questions?

@kirstenpowers10 I wonder if some reporters are thinking, ‘damn, it feels good to ask questions again. I’ve missed this. Oh, it’s my job!”

— Elizabeth Scalia (@TheAnchoress) May 15, 2013

@kirstenpowers10 @exjon It actually asks a question, how long will it be before those same apparatchiks apply the ignore and bury tactics.

@kirstenpowers10 It would be nice to think (erroneusly) that the state run media is developing ethics…

Nope! In the next Politico paragraph, hand wringing ensued. Oh, poor Carney! How admirable he is.

Three days into a changed environment in the briefing room, they say they admire how he has held his ground, deflecting reporters inquiries while at the same time maintaining the cool, no-drama demeanor that has long been a defining feature of the Obama White House.

Wait, there’s more gushing:

So far, Carney has withstood the recent grilling. Though he rarely gives reporters the answers they’re looking for, he hasn’t made any gaffes, has defended his boss fairly well, and hasn’t lost his composure.

What? Evidently, while they attended the briefings, they clearly did not hear anything. They were probably far too busy swooning over Jay Carney’s photo montage … of himself.

Huh? WH reporters “admire” Carney’s stonewalling? politico.com/blogs/media/20…

Poor lapdogs are afraid they’ll be sent to the doghouse. For doing their alleged jobs.
