President Barack Obama was no fan of Fox News—and he didn’t hide that fact. And there’s no requirement for the White House to call on every reporter with press credentials. But is it a good idea for the White House to fight with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta? And how should the White House respond when reporters act in an arguably out-of-line way? The Daily Signal’s Editor-in-Chief Rob Bluey and White House correspondent Fred Lucas join to discuss. Plus: The White House Correspondents’ Dinner will break with tradition next year and feature a historian instead of a comedian.
We also cover these stories:
