In an article today, TWT’s Joe Curl calls “foul” after the WH press corps got played during yesterday’s news conference. On the presidential presser, Curl says:

Curl says that as the president dribbled around questions from NBC’s Chuck Todd, USA Today’s David Jackson, Urban Radio Network’s April Ryan, Helen Thomas and McClatchy’s Margaret Talev, the nation’s most respected group of journalists began resembling the “Washington Generals, known for their long-running losing streak against the invincible Harlem Globetrotters.”
