President Obama met Tuesday afternoon with a small group of conservative reporters, columnists and commentators for an off-the-record discussion.
The group, according to a source familiar with the meeting, included Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot, National Review Washington editor Robert Costa, Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, syndicated columnists Kathleen Parker and Washington Post columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer.
Obama and the journalists talked for about 90 minutes in the Roosevelt room.
Costa tweeted after that it was an honor to meet Obama, but did not elaborate on the discussion. Given the off the record ground rules, it’s unlikely attendees will discuss exactly what was said inside.
The White House also declined to discuss the meeting.
