(CNN) - White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Friday shocked reporters when he announced President Obama would name his Supreme Court nominee early Saturday morning.
Gibbs quickly followed up he was joking.
"Obama announcement riles reporters". Who is writing your headlines? What a miss direction and had nothing to do with the proported NEWS. Marlene in Mich
WOW !!!!! A politician with a sense of humor? Hmmmmmmm!
he should give up on the jokes, he's just not that funny!
Great! It's good to know that reporters can get riled once in a while. How about getting riled during an interview with Cheney and he's caught lying through his teeth? Nope, the reporter just moves on with his questioning. Reporters rile me, lately.
Screw the reporters. They rarely report the facts anyway... only what "sells."
I agree with Marlene. After seeing the teaser headline I thought President Obama was declarign the end of the world. Turns out his press secretary is showing a humorous vein–something else that sets this Administration apart from the last one and is having a little fun with the press. I guess the press doesn't ahve a sense of humor.
I'm surprised it didn't say "Rips", "Slams", "Pounds", or "Tears Into" instead of "riles". Those words seem to be the only ones CNN.com knows these days. It's like I'm reading the WWE blog or something...

Gibbes has always been one of my favorites. Love this guy.
I agree completely. They softball Cheney all the time, mostly on Fix News but CNN is not much better. They know his answer is a lie or twisted opinion and they just pass it by, no follow up. They call themselves REPORTERS? I think not. It's not only with Cheney either. What has happened to the real reporters? Are there any left, certainly not on FixNews or CNN, not a tough question to be found.
Let me guess, you think he'll chose a conservative Justice? There's a greater chance that the sun won't come up tomorrow.
