President Obama had a town hall meeting in Grand Junction, Colorado Saturday, where he commented on TV coverage. “Yesterday I held a town hall in Belgrade, Montana. And we had a pretty good crowd. Some were big supporters of reform, some had concerns and questions, some were completely skeptical. And I got tough questions, but even though Montanans had strong opinions, they didn’t shout at one another, they were there to listen and that reflects the American people and what our democracy is about. A lot more than what’s been covered on TV the last several days.”

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Is Gibbs too jolly? Former Nixon and Ford deputy press secretary Jerry Warren visited the White House Friday, where he told Politico White House press secretary Robert Gibbs can be “too jovial about serious things.” “That can be dangerous,” he said. “Otherwise, I think he’s a fine man.”

President Obama has issued an “informal edict” for White House profiles, in light of long pieces on Valerie Jarrett and other staffers in the NYT magazine. From Peter Baker and Jeff Zeleny online Saturday: “But when a New York Times Magazine profile of Ms. Jarrett last month explored the old scratchiness [between her and Emanuel], White House officials said the normally calm Mr. Obama erupted with anger. An informal edict went out: no more cooperating with staff profiles. As a result, Mr. Emanuel declined a formal interview for this article.” (h/t Politico‘s Calderone)

President Obama had this editorial “Why We Need Health Care Reform” in NYT Saturday.
