BTC News' WH Correspondent; Give Him Turkey
In bragging (rightfully so) about their very own Eric Brewer being the first blogger to ask a question at a White House briefing and eliciting the notice of columnist Dan Froomkin last year, BTC News excerpts a revealing quote:
Eric Brewer, a scientist by trade and one of a handful of contributors to a small, liberal blog called BTC News, got his chance toward the end of Friday’s briefing.
The question he asked was a good one, on a topic that’s probably of great interest to an awful lot of people. It’s also precisely the kind of question your typical full-time White House correspondent doesn’t ask anymore — because there’s simply no point. You’re not going to get an answer.
What well-trained little puppies, they always go on the paper.
Click on BTC News and donate during their fundraising drive, to give the American people at least one person who is doing his business right in the middle of the WH press room and rubbing the Administration's nose in it.
(That's an unfortunate and confused metaphor, and I'm sorry for all of us that I wrote it)
