Jay Carney press questions in advance


A local CBS reporter from Arizona is revealing that President Obama's press secretary Jay Carney receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing. In an, "off the record meeting" with Jay Carney, the reporter also says that media members often receive the answers in advance of the briefing as well.

So much for unbiased, off the cuff questions to keep the Obama propaganda machine on its toes.

Read the transcript and watch the video below:

"It was a very busy day. We started here shortly after 8 o'clock with a coffee with press secretary Jay Carney inside his office in the West Wing," says the reporter.

"And this was the off-the-record so we were able to ask him all about some of the preparation that he does on a regular basis for talking to the press in his daily press briefings. He showed us a very long list of items that he has to be well versed on every single day.

"And then he also mentioned that a lot of times, unless it's something breaking, the questions that the reporters actually ask -- the correspondents -- they are provided to him in advance. So then he knows what he's going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents and reporters also have those answers printed in front of them, because of course it helps when they're producing their reports for later on. So that was very interesting."
