WND's Kinsolving Tries His Imperial Attitude On New Press Secretary
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've detailed the history of WorldNetDaily's Les Kinsolving's whining that recently departed White House press secretary Robert Gibbs wouldn't call on him to his satisfaction -- as if he had some kind of noblesse oblige from merely being old and hanging out in the White House briefing room a lot. Kinsolving showed no apparent awareness that his frivolous questions had demonstrated beyond a doubt that he had not earned the right to be taken seriously as anything other than a right-wing partisan hack.

The arrival of new press secretary, Jay Carney, has brought renewed whining from Kinsolving.

A Feb. 25 WND article complains that Carney "allowed NBC and Fox to ask six questions each, CBS to ask four and AP, ABC and CNN to have three each" while Kinsolving, "the second-most senior correspondent" on "the White House beat," wasn't called on at all.

As he has before, WND presented the question Kinsolving would have asked had he been called on:

Kinsolving had come prepared to ask for the president's perspective on a public situation developing over New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's lifestyle.

According to reports in the New York Times Cuomo, when he's not staying in the governor's mansion, lives with Sandra Lee.

And that, according to the Times' report of comments from Prof. Edward Peters, a consultant to the Vatican court, is a "violation of the fundamental moral expectation of the church." He warned that Cuomo taking communion in a Catholic church "is sacreligious."

"Does the president believe this is right or wrong," Kinsolving had prepared to ask Carney.

Of course, Carney could not know what Kinsolving was going to ask, yet the banality and irrelevence of Kinsolving's questions, which justifies the decision not to call on him every time.
