Gibbs is Bringing Gaggle Back

The ever hip White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs with his easy smile and Easter egg-colored ties seems to be bringing back the gaggle, at least for now.

WhiteHouseDossier.com Editor Keith Koffler writes on the matter today. This is good news, he says. But he stresses the importance of not cozying up too much to the likable Gibbs. “You get to know Gibbs, you grow to love him, and then you hesitate to take the tough angle your supposed to be taking in your stories,” he writes. But back on that good note…

An excerpt:

The gaggle provides a more informal atmosphere for reporters to question the press secretary, to the benefit both the public and the White House itself. When Gibbs began yesterday’s gaggle, he pointedly stepped to the side of the lectern to emphasize the relaxed nature of the upcoming interchange.
