Past admins complained about reporters but did not pull creds. The last time it happened likely was under LBJ when Secret Svc blocked pass of The Nation’s Robert Sherrill as a physical threat to president citing earlier fights. H/t to Joshua Keating who reported this in FP in '10

As someone commissioned an Army INF officer a month after Kent State, I can assure you no officer following his training would order troops to use lethal force vs rock throwers w/o expecting to be prosecuted.

National Press Foundation names editor of the year for leading our newsroom through & beyond the June 28 shooting. We miss Gerald, Rob, John, Rebecca & Wendi every day and we will continue to put out the "damn paper". Thank you .

You don’t have to dispute the appeal of Yankees-Red Sox to decry decision to deny - a single primetime game. Foolish to limit audience for defending champs & young stars of two likable teams. Not even one game?

Let me amend this: Doug Cornell retired before the seats were installed so he and wife Helen Thomas never shared the front row.

Amen. Working with Pete Wilson and George Deukmejian, Larry was one of the real good guys you liked being around. Never lost his sense of humor even in tough times.

It is stunning and unprecedented that any press secretary would pass up three opportunities to defend her own credibility -- or refer it to outside counsel.

What to call this latest addition to Cleveland sports infamy, along with The Drive, The Fumble, The Shot? The Dribble? Other, better words are not printable. It's enough to drive you to drink.

It's even worse than that. It wasn't a call. It was in the Briefing Room with the official standing in front of us. And we asked them to put it on the record. They declined because president had spoken.

Miller’s recall is flawed. In ’90, when voiced worries about F-word. WHCA asked his agent that he not be “smutty” or “one-sided.” It was Miller who asked to preview jokes. There was no WHCA pre-censorship or editing of his jokes.

For the record -- really -- that was not at the WHCA dinner; was at a different press dinner.

Just for the record for those who don't look at story: Imus never appeared at WHCA. 1996 entertainer was Al Franken. Imus was at Radio/TV dinner.

Great new gig at SiriusXM for . Well deserved even if it means he is abandoning us in the basement of the White House. Great mix of wry humor and foreign policy chops.

Worth noting defensive coach Jim Schwartz was four-year star linebacker for while getting economics degree. Learned winning at Hilltop.
