Oops.  Not the President's job to call on Chuck Todd and company.  Can you say shutout?

It was like the feeling when a crowd figures out that a pitcher hasn't given up a hit in 5 innings: during President Obama's press conference on Tuesday, everyone suddenly started noticing that he wasn't calling on any television reporters.  Link
So Mr. Todd.  You say it's not your job to do your job?  Well, I guess then the President will just have to answer questions from real journalists who thinks that being a journalist is their job.

Oh and stop with this BS the damn shutdown is the fault of everyone.  Start reporting that fact correctly.

Update:  Thanks to Jec, Politico is reporting that the President also met with conservative newspapers this afternoon as well...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
