JOURN-O-LIST CAVALRY TO THE RESCUE! Spotted: @joshtpm @CapehartJ @ezraklein & other lefty columnists headed into the West Wing as a group. POTUS coffee? Carney meeting? Anyone?
Watch for even-more-unified weaponized Administration-excusing talking points, coming soon to a publication near you!
The tweet came from Ari Shapiro, a reporter for NPR, and mentions Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post and MSNBC, Josh Marshall of TPM - Talking Points Memo and Ezra Klein, Washington Post, Bloomberg and MSNBC. Of the three, only Ezra Klein was a member of the original Journ--List.
About an hour ago, Shapiro clarified (at twitter), writing: "For the record, Obama often does OTR [off the record] sit-down sessions with columnists & reporters left, right & center. Nothing nefarious about it per se."
