Obama signs press freedom act then refuses questions from press

A report at the link below is titled: “Press Freedom, Sure. But No Questions.”

There was some rich irony at the White House today -- President Obama signed the Press Freedom Act, and then promptly refused to take any questions.

Last Friday Mr. Obama refused to take any questions after delivering an angry statement (pictured) on the oil spill in the Rose Garden.

Obama has not held a prime time White House news conference in many months, despite much pleading from pundits and members of the media.
