PGHA: Better White House Responses

For this week, Harvey asked the question:

How should the White House respond to incredibly stupid accusations at press conferences?

It's my opinion that the White House is doing a fine job in responding to these types of questions, but with the media the way it is the public never gets to hear the responses. All the people of America end up hearing are the stupid accusations.

This could be changed by using the power of TV in a different way. First, lets try...


- Have a group of "regular" people answering questions from the media, and at the end of each session, one of them get's voted out of the Press Room. Have disgusting challenges that they can win to gain immunity, like... who can rub Helen Thomas' feet the longest, or who can lick Dan Rather's boots the best.

Or we could tap into the teen drama market...

Announcer: Next, on a very special Press Briefing, Scott McClellan reveals how he lost his virginity.


Perhaps we could let the Who's Line crew take over...

Drew Carey: And our next game is "World's Worst." Show me the world's worst person to be Press Secretary.

Ryan Styles: Hello, my name is Howard. Yeaaaaaarrrrrghh!!

Colin Mochrie: (Holding one hand up like a hook and squinting with one eye) Arrrrr. What's the question me maties?

But if we really want people to tune in to a Press Briefing, we need to tap into AI. That's right;
American Idol: Press Secretary
But we might need to get someone other than Simon to head up the judging... we don't want to see a Press Secretary cry on national television.

So remember, the problem isn't the message that the White House is giving, it's finding a way to get America to listen.
