With the Zimmerman trial taking the front and center over the last week the White House has had a bit of a breather. Late last week the administration took stock of its friends still within the establishment media by holding a yet another off the record meeting to discuss political messaging going into the second half of the new year.
It is creepy that meetings with the media to discuss messaging are happening, even creepier that they are being held entirely off the record..
To be fair at least some of the progressive (but still mostly non-establishment) media has given the White House a hard time over it’s obsession with Snowden and the bugging of the AP. But Obama thinks he can get the establishment media back in lock step.
