Obama whines about press coverage: ‘You guys in the press are incorrigible’

Obama-HillaryWhile sitting down for what Newsbusters’ P.J. Gladnick called a “starry-eyed interview of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,” Obama whined about a question he was asked by CBS’ Steve Kroft.

Real Clear Politics has the relevant transcript:

STEVE KROFT, CBS NEWS: I have to ask you, what’s the date of expiration on this endorsement?


KROFT: No, no, I have to ask that question. I mean, come on. I mean, you’re sitting here, together. Everybody in town is talking about it already, and this interview is taking place.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You know, Steve, I’ve got to tell you, you guys in the press are incorrigible. I was literally inaugurated four days ago, and you’re talking about elections four years from now.

Ever since Obama emerged on the national stage, the entire media has done all it could to ensure his election, and in 2012, his re-election.

But let anyone ask him a question and he whines like a baby.

Gladnick added some of the comments posted at CBS:

Steve Kroft surrenders his role as a journalist and has  become a paparazzi fawning over Beiber.

Next time, do not have a liberal interview two other  liberals. It makes for boring TV. For example, before ever broaching Benghazi,  they decided to get the more important stuff out of the way first, i.e. their  feelings and Hilary’s state of health.

What an Obama and Clinton love fest. Thanks Steve for  nothing…..What a let down. So many important things going on in this world,  and this is what we got?????..

This was not an interview, it was an ad for the Hillary  for President campaign.

Tonight’s show was DULL, now it seems the president can  just call up and get a free political commercial.

This is pathetic, why don’t you just put them in the  backseat of a 57′ chevy and let them steam up the windows

I had no idea that Steve Kroft is part of the obama  administration. Who wrote these questions, axelrod?

An oyster on a half-shell could have done better than  Steve Kroft. Journalistic FAIL. The mainstream media has failed the American  people.

This interview was a love-fest. These were not softballs  – these were marshmallows.

Did Steve’s arm get tired from all of the softballs he  threw!!??

The mutual licking was so loud it could be heard around  the world. In a word, discusting!!!!! Soundeded like the interviews Putin gets  in Russia.

Yes, Virginia, there really is a Democrat-media complex, and it presents a clear and present danger to the country.
