L.A. Citizen Wrote: One of the last reporters had no idea what she was talking about regarding Cuba. Obama had to coach her a little bit. He kept asking that she be more specefic. She had no clue.... so why ask about the Cuban 5? Some of these reporters...damn, you would think are more knowledgeable about current events.....this is their job.

Most of them are just dumb opportunists that will say or do anything to further their own agendas, I.e. make more money. Now that it think about it, which is worse - the interviewer or the interviewiee?
jaredsxtn WroteIt was great political theater that, if you were watching closely, upset more than one male reporter in the room.It is absolutely wonderful that the President did this. Men have dominated the profession for decades and it was a breath of fresh air to see the President deliberately exclude them from the process today. I'm sure a whole lot of old 'traditional values' men might disagree with me, but I thought it was one of the best press conferences I have ever seen.
