Video: Jay Carney Caught in Falsehood Over Obama Support of 'Press Protection' Law
Throughout the briefing, Carney kept reminding reporters that, as a United State senator, President Obama had been in favor of this "press protection" legislation, but Republicans had killed it.
Todd, who had obviously done his homework, then dropped a nuke on Carney by revealing that, in 2009 as president, Obama changed his mind and "killed" the legislation, even though at the time it likely would have easily passed through both chambers of Congress, which were then controlled by Democrats.

Michele Bachmann worried the IRS might function as Obamacare death panels [VIDEO]
In the wake of revelations the IRS improperly targeted tea party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax exempt status during the last election cycle, Michele Bachmann is worried the Obama administration's apparent desire to make life difficult for conservatives might extend into other walks of life.
Specifically, she's concerned the president and his cronies might deny health care coverage to conservatives once Obamacare is fully implemented.
That's right -- she's worried about those dreaded death panels.
