President Barack Obama held an off-the-record meeting with top White House reporters on Thursday afternoon, POLITICO has learned.
The meeting, with reporters from major print and television outlets, comes days after the White House Correspondents Association complained publicly about their lack of access to the president during a golf outing in Palm Beach, Fla., and one day after Obama met with local television reporters.
White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on the meeting.
“Potus has meetings all the time. I don’t comment on all of them,” he told POLITICO in an email.
WHCA president and Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the meeting.
