Tuesday at the White House daily briefing, CBS News’ Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett lodged a formal complaint against the Obama Admistration for blocking members of the press from a meeting between the president and the surviving Apollo 11 astronauts.
Major Garrett, representing the White House Correspondents’ Association, said only allowing still photos to be taken at the meeting “limits television coverage” for the “American tax payers” who payed for the entire NASA program.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said he “understood” and added, “These are legitimate American heroes, on that you and I can agree.”
Last week Earnest claimed the Obama administration was the most transparent in history.
