BREAKING: Why is the media going OFF THE RECORD???

W.H. holds off-the-record Benghazi briefing

The White House held an off-the-record briefing with reporters on Friday afternoon to discuss recent revelations about the Benghazi investigation, sources familiar with the meeting tell POLITICO.

The meeting began around 12:45 p.m. and postponed the daily, on-the-record White House press briefing to 1:45 p.m. White House press secretary Jay Carney did not respond to a request for confirmation of the meeting.

The off-the-record session was announced to reporters in the wake of an ABC News report showing that White House and State Dept. officials were involved in revising the now-discredited CIA talking points about the attack on Benghazi.

Emails obtained by ABC News show that State Dept. spokesperson Victoria Nuland requested that the CIA scrub references to an Al Qaeda-linked group, which, Nuland told White House officials, “could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings.”

Here is what you are to tell the public.”


Every reporter that attended that briefing should either report what was said (in detail) or resign.

This is a new low for the media.

Fucking ASSHATS!

    I’d like to see the name of the reporters who went along with “off the record”. Maybe one will leak ?

    LOL, from the Politico comments:

    “Guys, I’m not saying the whistle blowers are lying, I’m just saying don’t listen to those voices that tell you tyranny is around the corner. We are only looking at your IRS records for your safety….and for the kids….yeah that’s it for the kids.”

    That’s atrocious and unethical, especially for the so called “journalists” who have complied.

    It almost seems illegal, too. I suppose the Prez could claim it is a nat’l security issue or something, but an off the record briefing to the press sure doesn’t feel constitutional.

      Hey, they have to protect their sources, don’t they?

    • fif says:

      I am betting that is exactly the rationale: there is some security issue that will explain the whole thing but they can’t reveal it publicly. This way, they can shut the press up (even with the little that is being revealed) so there’s less blowback, and it will just go away.

      Good on Digby. A few more posts like that and she might actually regain my respect. Obama is just Nixon with a “D” by his name.

    • From his testimony, it sounded like Hicks went through a period of non-employement, and then got the “desk job” demotion after he applied. So wasn’t he in reality “fired”?

    If there turns out to be a connection, at least one cartoonist, and thousands of progressive assholes have some apologies to make. Not they ever will.

      I signed many petitions and letters to Reps and Senators to keep those towers open.

      Very disappointed to see both Warren and whathisname.. Lurch’s pinch hitter..temp appointed by Deval Patrick chose not to support funding for the towers.

      Thanks, fake Senators.

      I want Scott Brown back.
