From today’s WH Press Briefing:
Q Thank you, Dana. Two questions. Senate Majority Leader — Majority Whip Durbin wants the so-called fairness doctrine returned because he says, “the airwaves belong to the American people.” And my question: Does the President know of any daily newspaper in the United States without a website, so that if the fairness doctrine was ever restored, all these newspapers would have to provide equal time?
MS. PERINO: I don’t know. You’ve stumped me. What’s your next one? Do it quickly.
Q In Mexico’s President Calderon’s state of the nation address, he said, “Mexico does not end at its borders. Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico.” And my question: What is the President’s reaction to this statement, and what it means to New Mexico and other U.S. states?
MS. PERINO: The President has tried to push forward a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Obviously, he thinks that if people want to come here and work, they want to do so temporarily. They’re not seeking to live here, they want to live at home, but they want to have a better job in Mexico. And the President would like to see a comprehensive immigration reform bill done.
Q None of them want to remain here?
MS. PERINO: I’m going to go — go ahead.
