Obama Skipping Over Press Corps?

obama_2-10.jpgWaPo’s Howie Kurtz writes about increasing grumblings from the White House press corps over the lack of presidential news conferences in recent months:

“It’s a source of great frustration here,” says Chip Reid, CBS’s White House correspondent. “It’s important for us to hold the president’s feet to the fire.”

NBC White House reporter Chuck Todd calls the situation a “shame,” saying the administration is trying to control the message rather than allowing Obama to be seen “unscripted.”

While the White House argues that there has been no shortage of appearances by the president on television and in print, some White House correspondents argue that they haven’t had the opportunity to ask the president specific questions about a wide-range of topics.
