What Does Obama Have Against Astronauts?
TO THE MOON BARRY!
On Tuesday, several White House pool reporters complained to Press Secretary Josh Earnest that television reporters were given limited coverage of an event at the White House.
ABC’s Jonathan Karl and CBS reporter Major Garrett chided the administration for barring cameras from a
meeting between President Barack Obama and the surviving members of the Apollo 11 crew that landed on the moon July 21st 1969.
Karl believed that the press corps was barred from the event due to the astronauts’ previous criticism of the
president over cancelling the Space Shuttle and Constellation programs. Garett quoted the late Neil Armstrong’s criticism of the president.
“Is it because some of those Apollo astronauts, including Neil Armstrong, was very critical of this president for the way he has handled the space program … saying that the president’s canceling of the Constellation program was lamentably embarrassing and unacceptable. Is that why the president did not want to see television cameras in this photo op?” Karl asked, after Earnest told him that the president’s schedule did not permit television access.
Before the briefing was over, Major Garrett informed Earnest that he was lodging a formal complaint on behalf of the press corps regarding the administration’s handling of the event.
