Government Now Holding Phony Press Conferences

One can only wonder how many times this has gone on in the past......

Employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency posed as reporters and asked questions of an agency official during a press conference about the California wildfires.

With no reporters in the room, FEMA press relations staff members asked questions of Harvey Johnson, the agency's deputy administrator, that reporters had been posing to them throughout the day, Keehner said.
One staffer asked Johnson, ``Are you happy with FEMA's response so far?'' He replied, ``I'm very happy with FEMA's response so far.''

A staffer even said, ``last question,'' as if telling reporters it was time to wrap up.

That kind of mendacity should be prosecuted! Chertoff says they'll be disciplined. Awwww, they'll lose their coffee break for a few weeks.
