Best bit of "Gannon" BS for today...


Mr. Guckert said Saturday that he had no journalism experience before arriving at Gopusa, apart from working for his high school and college newspapers. Asked why he did not, in his function as a White House reporter, even try to interview White House officials, he said, "I thought there was a lot of meat that came out of the press briefings."

"You may say that lacks some kind of journalistic ambition," he added.

While others have focused on the Plame issue (see below), the fact is, White House briefings are designed to be content-free; Scottie McClellan's non-answers are entertaining because he's not very good at it (which is why many have suggested he needed a "Gannon"); he can't hold a candle to the psyopathic Ari Fleischer.
