Les Kinsolving continues to make Dana Perino’s day…from Friday:
MS. PERINO: Yes, Les.
Q Thank you very much. Two questions. The Washington Post quotes Irena Briganti of FOX News as saying, “National Public Radio’s lack of news judgment is astonishing and their treatment of a respected journalist like Juan Williams is appalling.” And my question: Could you tell us how the President feels about this tax-exempt and tax-supported network so discriminating against an undeniably qualified reporter who he invited to interview him?
MS. PERINO: That’s a question for NPR to answer, for the decision that they made –
Q No, no, I want to know what the President thinks.
MS. PERINO: I’ve never spoken to the President about what he thinks about any particular organization. We enjoy working with them here at the White House. They have really good correspondents that we like working with.
Q All right. The President does not believe that the First Amendment prohibits him from speaking out against the Miller Brewing Company’s widely reported financing of an obscene parody of “Jesus Christ’s Last Supper” in San Francisco, does he?
MS. PERINO: Well, you’re clearing the room, Les. I’m going to decline to comment.
