ABC’s Jonathan Karl Talks About Covering a Tough Beat Like The White House

How does a top network reporter break through the official White House talking points? ABC’s Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl has been busy trying — and in the process has gotten into it twice over the last month with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, including just yesterday.

In this installment of Media Beat, Karl had some good advice for budding journalists looking to cover a tough beat like the White House. His advice? Go back to the basics: Be aggressive while pursuing the story, develop your sources, be fair and do your best to be objective.

Karl also revealed some interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits from campaign 2012. You might be surprised to know how little Karl saw candidate Mitt Romney—even when flying on the same plane.
