Do Not Taunt the Tapper Fun Ball

It looks like Jake Tapper is losing his patience with President Obama:

President Obama Takes Questions from People Mag, Entertainment Tonight, Disses White House Press Corps


Disses? And that’s just the headline. Here’s some red meat:

His last news conference was at the G20 in June, when he answered six questions from three reporters on the European debt crisis, the conflict in Syria, and the notion of politics stopping at the water’s edge.

The White House press corps has not formally been given the opportunity to ask questions of the president on U.S. soil since his appearance in the Briefing Room on June 8 (when he said “the private sector is doing fine.”)

His last formal White House news conference was on March 6.

Tapper added some fair-and-balanced filler at the bottom about how Obama is still doing interviews on the campaign trail with local reporters. But, c’mon, most of those are puff-pieces.
