Tonight on On the Record, Greta Van Susteren wanted to know why President Obama only took two questions during his joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, and she decided to ask someone who's intimately familiar with the White House Press Corps.
Unfortunately, she picked Dana Perino instead. Perino declared that Obama's actions showed his "disdain for the press," adding that if "Obama had taken questions from the American press it probably would not have been on immigration ... but that's the breaks."
Contrary to Perino's suggestion, Obama did take a question from the American press. He took one from Univision, which -- as their spokesperson remindedThe Hill today -- is a member of the American press:
In a statement to The Hill, a Univision spokeswoman said: "Not only is Univision a U.S. based company -- we are headquartered in New York City -- but we are one of the top five networks in the country regardless of language.
As Media Matters noted, heaven forbid a former White House Press Secretary might know which media outlets are American, but we are talking about Dana Perino here.
