Obama holds off the record meeting with reporters

President Barack Obama held an off-the-record meeting with top White House reporters on Thursday afternoon, POLITICO has learned.

The meeting, with reporters from major print and television outlets, comes days after the White House Correspondents Association complained publicly about their lack of access to the president during a golf outing in Palm Beach, Fla., and one day after Obama met with local television reporters.

White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on the meeting.

"Potus has meetings all the time. I don't comment on all of them," he told POLITICO in an email.

WHCA president and Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the meeting.

On Sunday, Henry released a statement on behalf of the White House press corps expressing "extreme frustration... about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States" during his vacation in Florida and promised to fight for greater transparency. POLITICO followed that news on Monday night with an extensive report about the president's media relations strategy, noting that Obama's careful "limiting, shaping and manipulating" of the media had left reporters "scrambling for access." The president held one-on-one, on-the-record interviews with reporters from local television affiliates on Wednesday.

In a White House press briefing on Wednesday, Carney said he was "completely sympathetic" to the press corps' concerns about access.
Now why oh why would the white house have an off the record meeting with the media? Sounds more like a strategy session to me.
