I agree with the conventional thinking to the extent that the White House's official utterances, no matter how divorced from reality, are "news" by virtue of their being the White House's official utterances. Therefore, someone has to cover them. But White House Corespondent is a prestige assignment, often given to good reporters, that is really little more than stenography. When is the last time a White House Correspondent broke a real story? If I were in charge, I'd put inexperienced reporters in the Press Room and, if I were to have a White House Correspondent at all, I would have him or her poking around in the agencies, calling West Wing sources, and doing the things he or she had to do to get the big job in the first place.


Of course the basic problem is access. If every reporter in a press conference for example dropped whatever new topic they wanted to address and asked the same question over again that Sarah Huckster just lied about until some grain of truth came out there might be some use to this exercise. Or maybe point out her lies, etc. They know that they would be blackballed and replaced by someone from Newsmax or something. They are useless cowed sheep. (Cowed sheep!!! Nice one!)
