In response to StalkingButler's comment:
andie, I think that you're referring to Bret Baier of Fox News who was not and would never be invited to the White House by this administration. The inimitable Breitbart sadly is in no position to accept any invitations anywhere having passed away suddenly over a year ago.
and sorry about that flipness...
I did miss the fact that Bret Baier of FOX passed away last year. So young. May he RIP.
Apology more then accepted. Really glad I have not offended you in some way, SB.
Below is most of the article at your link. You will note that is NOT TL/DR. (:
Juan Williams refused to describe what Obama himself said, but he did state that the White House is in “full fight mode over the Affordable Healthcare Act right now.” He added, “They feel as if they had a major systems failure, a major management failure, and they’re trying to get back on track.” Williams said that the biggest messaging issue has related to President Obama’s lie that if Americans wanted to keep their health insurance plans, they could. “There is frustration, that’s clear from everybody who I was talking to this morning at the White House,” Williams concluded.
This is not the first time that the White House has wooed specific groups of journalists. In October, as Breitbart News reported, Obama met with The Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer, the Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot, National Review’s Washington editor Robert Costa, former CNN co-host Kathleen Parker, and Byron York of the Washington Examiner. In May, the White House held a session on Benghazi on “deep background.” In September, Obama met with select reporters to discuss the situation in Syria.
