Curl Calls It: WH Press Corps Gets Played

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:

Many in the hard-pressed press corps played along throughout the hourlong show, turning the ball over again and again – “accidentally,” of course.

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.”

So who are Curl’s MVPs? ABC’s Jake Tapper and FNC’s Major Garrett.

Check out Curl’s story for the play-by-play.
