  •  Pfeiffer's blunder/faux/dipshit comment... (16+ / 0-)

    ... is the best thing he could of done considering the media coverage it's getting. It made the WH respond and question it's position on the wrong side of history. So in a way it's great that this happened. Unfortunately most media types are not Angry Mouse and the majority would not have pushed like she did for a straight answer (which she never got). Kudos all around to those who have been on top of this story since it first came up. If they don't want to talk issues we have to make them. This (whatever it was) was needed and major props (again) to AM. Let's keep pushing.

    What I believe the TRUE takeaway from all of this is that, as it has been noted by media analysts for many decades (and as I have witnessed it, firsthand), one of the greatest powers of the presidency is its ability to DRIVE THE MEDIA NARRATIVE.

    Well said bob.
