Reporters Not Happy With Jay Carney Over Their Limit Access to Obama
Were not allowed to photograph Obama, Clinton, Bush on recent trip to South Africa
(WASHINGTON)—White House press secretary Jay Carney got an earful Thursday from a frustrated White House press corps, as reporters revolted against what they described as limited access to President Obama.
"We are working and have been working on expanding access where we can," Carney explained.
The uproar comes just days after the White House declined to let journalists photograph the President and first lady with former President George W. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the long flight to South Africa. The White House later released several photos of the rare assembly aboard Air Force One taken by the official White House photographer.
