Do you recognize this lower third? It’s from the only video news story about the UCONN Women’s basketball team’s visit to the White House last month.
It might not look familiar because it’s not produced by one of the networks, but rather, by the White House.
“Obama White House officials decided to do their own media report on the visit, complete with cuts, interviews, and chyrons identifying who’s speaking,” writes Tapper, while the pool report from the day said: “Your Pool was not allowed to go over and shoot POTUS with the team shooting hoops. We protested loudly.”
Tapper asks, “Do Obama White House officials think their media coverage isn’t flattering enough?”
This video, and others, is available on the White House YouTube channel.
