    Helen Thomas and Chip Reid take stuttering Gibbs to task.

    do you think that the Obama admin. is tightly controlling the press in order to keep the spin on Obama's agenda?

    I hope this means the Press is getting brave and will start giving Barack the same anal exam they loved to give Bush.

    That is the second time I have seen something like that this week.

    Earlier they outright laughed at Gibbs when he refused to say Obama won't raise taxes.

    The press it appears has had enough of being lead around by the nose by Obama and his crew, as Helen Thomas said, 'You have no answers.'

    Sums up the Obama administration perfectly.

    Hopefully the honeymoon is over and the press will actually start doing heir jobs instead of kissing ass.

    I can't believe I agree with Helen Thomas, that's like 5 times in my adult years. I do so hope that the press is really getting mad, but I doubt it.

    Gibbs alone must be getting under their skin.

    He was very arrogant in that cllip...when he wasn't stuttering and grinning like an idiot.

    You should be concerned, if the media publishes just what the WH wants, regardless of party, you have no way of making informed choices.
