In case you missed it, here are some stories that posted across the web in recent history.

Address May Hint at Compromise on Ways to Fight Inequality by Jackie Calmes for The New York Times.

Oh Snap! Calmes Deflects, Henry Hit

In his presser today, Pres. Obama tweaked NYT‘s Jackie Calmes for rambling, who in turn passed the buck to Fox’s Ed Henry. From WaPo‘s live blog:

After Calmes attempted to ask Obama about Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” and some other issues, Obama cut her off and asked her to narrow her scope a bit.

‘You’re stringing a bunch of things along,’ he told her. ‘Let’s see if we can hone in on a question.’

Colmes responded by saying that her run-on questions aren’t as bad as Fox News’s Ed Henry. The comment, made light-heartedly, was met with some laughter and gasps by the press corps.

For the record, we conversed with Ed Henry at Susanna Quinn‘s surprise birthday party last Friday, and found him to be quite articulate. Mayhaps Jackie is projecting a bit…?

White House Pooler Discovers Obama’s Oopsie

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END


NYT White House Correspondent Jackie Calmes, who has been covering President Obama’s fundraiser at actor George Clooney‘s home for the past 24 hours, issued an early morning Pool Report after calling a photo-travel lid at 2:32 a.m. Calmes wrote the new report (#11) to correct what was supposed to be an amusing anecdote the President told at last night’s soirée regarding his Hope poster and Clooney being photoshopped out of a picture. In her report she quote’s the AP’s Jim Kuhnhenn, who clears up the error.

“According to the AP and its White House reporter, fellow pooler Jim Kuhnhenn, Potus erred on Thursday night in telling donors at George Clooney’s house his anecdote about the iconic ‘Hope’ poster of the 2008 presidential campaign. Potus said artist Shepard Fairey had based his design on a photo in which then-Sen. Obama appeared alongside Clooney at an event on the humanitarian crisis in Darfur (leading Potus to quip that it was the first and last time that Clooney had ever been ‘photo-shopped’ from a photo).

Here’s how Jim describes the reality:
‘In fact, the artist who created the poster, Shepard Fairey, used another photograph of Obama but said he relied on the Obama-Clooney picture to avoid a copyright infringement case with The Associated Press. He pleaded guilty in February to criminal contempt for fabricating and destroying evidence.’”

NJ and Politico to Host Twin Debriefings

It’s ugly time once again for NJ and Politico.

On Jan. 25 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. NJ, in conjunction with The Atlantic, will host a State of the Union debriefing at the National Press Club. The description: “Our interlocutors —James Bennet of The Atlantic, Ron Brownstein of National Journal, Jackie Calmes of the New York Times, and Major Garrett of National Journal in addition to our audience — will put Republican and Democratic Hill leadership in the hot seat to dissect the President’s address, assessing how President Obama’s case statement for the year will impact November’s outcomes.”

Meanwhile, on that very morning, Politico is also hosting a State of the Union debriefing. Theirs is being held at the W from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Politico‘s invitation doesn’t list their guests, but we have a feeling Mike Allen will be all over it. UPDATE: We checked in with Politico’s event staff. They’re not releasing their names just yet. Stay tuned…

Sunday Morning Panels: Only Males Need Apply

We’re cutting to the chase. No flowery intro needed to delve into a topic we know you’ve awaiting all week long: the number of mushroom heads that will appear on this weekend’s political talk shows. As usual, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews wins the consistency award for having two females on his panel.

Dana Perino, Brit Hume and Juan Williams. (h/t Mike Allen’s Politico Playbook)

President Obama Holds Oil Spill Press Conference

President Obama just wrapped up his first official press conference on the Gulf Coast oil spill. It lasted about an hour.

After about ten minutes of remarks, the President took questions. Up first was the AP’s Jennifer Loven who asked if the President has been personally involved enough. “This has been our highest priority,” Obama responded.

Brian Williams, Harry Smith and George Stephanopoulos anchored special coverage on NBC, CBS and ABC. Chuck Todd, Jake Tapper and Chip Reid all also reported from the WH East Room.

After Loven, Tapper, Todd, McClatchy’s Steve Thomma, Reid, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman, Helen Thomas, NYT‘s Jackie Calmes, EFE’s Macarena Vidal and Fox News’ Major Garrett got called on by the President for questions, in that order.

Thomas asked the first non-oil spill question, on Afghanistan. She asked Obama not to give her any “Bush-ist” too (not bullsh*t, calm down everyone). Calmes brought it back to oil spill. Garrett asked about the possible Sestak job offer from the administration- Obama promised an official response shortly, adding that nothing improper took place.

CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC also carried. WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza, who’s live-tweeting the press conference, tweeted “tough image for Obama…MSNBC goes with split screen: Obama on one side, oil pipe spewing into gulf on the other.”

White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton took on criticism that the President hasn’t had a press conference in a long time on Twitter today:

@billburton44: politico: photo w/ a caption saying potus hasn’t had a press conf in 10 mos – odd since it’s from his press conf 4 mos ago

@billburton44: Other recent press conf’s: 2/9 (in the WH briefing room – documented in the photo) & 4/13 (in DC at the Nuclear Summit)

And despite press corps complaints that Presidential press conferences have been lacking, Real Clear Politics’ Mike Memoli tweeted this pic, “Low turnout from press for this event. Dozens of empty seats.”
