Should Reporter Have Interrupted Obama?

Conservative commentators diverged over the weekend over the appropriateness of a reporter for the website TheDailyCaller interrupting President Obama during his remarks at a White House Press conference last week. On Fox News, Chris Wallace called the interruption by Neil Munro "outrageous," adding, "The idea that you would interrupt the President in the middle of prepared remarks and shout a question -- I don't think the guy should be allowed back in the White House on a press pass, and my guess is he won't be." But Tucker Carlson, the editor of the conservative website, told Politico.com, "He [Munro] was doing what reporters are supposed to do. ... Presidents come out and they expect the press to act as stenographers -- dutifully take down their every word and they retreat back into the White House. It's very frustrating that they sit there every day and act ... as politicians' stenographer." A similar back-and-forth occurred on CNN's Reliable Sources on Sunday. When host Howard Kurtz commented that Munro had "no business interrupting the president," DailyCaller reporter Matt Lewis shot back, "The press corps should be a little less deferential to authority. ... He did the right thing."
