The lapdog growls

This is truly a "man bites dog" story.  Okay, I'm being snarky.  What it really is is a bunch of whiny snivelers griping because their hero isn't as nice to them as they are to him.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs met with a delegation from the White House press corps for 75 minutes on Thursday in an effort to improve frayed relations between the two sides.

Ed Chen, a White House correspondent for Bloomberg News who is president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, said he asked for the meeting “to clear the air because in my 10-plus years at the White House, rarely have I sensed such a level of anger, which is wide and deep, among members over White House practices and attitude toward the press.”
Stop, please! I'm laughing so hard I'm about to wet myself! "Anger" at the White House and its attitude toward the press. Child, please!

I'll grant that the press has been disrespected by the White House, particularly the little incident on April 10th when Il Duce took off for a "soccer game" and ditched the press.

But COME ON!  For this bunch of ass-kissers to whine about their "treatment" by the White House is beyond laughable.  Write a story that's actually critical of Il Duce once in a while, and then I'll take your "grievances" seriously.

Pompous douchbags.
