Dana Milbank vs. Nico Pitney: It’s On.

This morning on CNN’s Reliable Sources, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank and Huffington Post’s Nico Pitney faced off over Pitney’s question last week at Pres. Obama’s news conference.

Milbank’s point: “I believe that whether it’s Nico Pitney, with ‘The Huffington Post,’ or whether it’s Carl Cameron, with Fox News, the White House should not be calling somebody the night before saying, we are going to call on you if you ask a question on a particular subject asked in a certain way.”

Pitney held his own trying to explain the White House involvement, but then the conversation turned to Milbank’s reporting during the Bush administration.

At one point, host Howard Kurtz said, “You two are going to have to take this outside.” A CNN edited version of the segment below:
