Press Secretary Admits “Questions” at Press Briefings are “Scripted” – Submitted in Advance
This just confirms what many suspected all along.
So much for being the most “transparent” administration in history, as Obama had pledged in 2008. A veteran award-winning reporter in Arizona says Press Secretary Jay Carney admitted that questions asked during press conferences are often submitted in advance, and the answers are scripted. He even admitted he sometimes provides his answers to the media in advance.
Carney admitted unless it’s a breaking story this is usually the case. He claims it’s very “useful” for record keeping for when they (The White House) are preparing reports for later on.
Catherine Anaya, who works for CBS-5 TV in Arizona found these revelations “very interesting.”
