Covering the White House

Marvin Kalb talked to White House correspondents about how the press covers the White House. They responded to questions from members of the audience. The forum "Thank You, Mr. President" explored five decades of White House coverage as part of Kalb Report Series on Democracy and the Press, funded by a grant from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation. This was the second installment of a four-part series focusing on "craft" and "impact" in critical areas of journalism. The Kalb Report, jointly produced by George Washington University, Harvard University's Shorenstein Center, and the National Press Club, took place in the National Press Club's Main Ballroom before an audience of college students and National Press Club members.
