White House Correspondents tell WHCInsider.com that Gibbs’ briefing room nickname is “The Gibbsnotist” for his ability to “bring the temperature down” and put some correspondents to sleep.
Watch ABC News WH reporter Jake Tapper and veteran WH reporter, The Examiner’s Julie Mason, on reporting from the front and back rows of the White House briefing room. Tapper talks about the change in his relationship with Press Secretary Gibbs from the campaign to the very public daily briefings. Both agree that WHC tweets are not news but a good source of information. The tweeting birds you hear in the background were not added in post but birds serenading the WH north lawn.
