For this analysis I chose to look at the press conference done by Jay Carney, the new press secretary for the White House.
This press conference took place on Feb 23, 2011 and covered a wide range of topics such as President Obama's policy on the Defense of Marriage Act, oil, and the uprisings in Libya.
Dana Milbank at the Washing Post wrote an article that chose to look at the context of Jay Carney's debut more than the actual content of his answers. He says that Carney had a difficult time descrbing the White House's policies because there was a lack of one. He goes on to say that the administration has been very passive about certain events. Milbank does not choose to pick apart Carney's words, but instead he places them in the bigger picture of how the administration has been functioning as a whole.
