WHCA Head: Board Will Discuss Daily Caller’s Status Following “Discoutdteous” Reporter’s Behavior
White House Correspondents’ Association president Caren Bohan says they will look at the status of the website that employs Neil Munro, the rude reporter at President Obama’s immigration speech. Bohan said, “It was discourteous. It’s not the way reporters who cover the White House conduct themselves.”
“The WHCA always encourages vigorous questioning of the president, but that does not extend to rude interruptions of the president in the middle of a speech,” Bohan said. “I’ve thrown questions to the President before, but reporters typically wait until he’s finished speaking.”
The Daily Caller, a conservative website, is a member of the in-town White House press pool. But after today’s incident many have speculated that it could lose its access to the President and to the White House.
