Gibbs issues 100-day grades for administration, press

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Reporters are outshining the Obama administration in the first hundred days, at least according to the administration's press liaison.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs gives the Obama administration a "B plus" on its first 100 days.

"I think there's always - and I think the president would say - there's room for improvement," he said Sunday, in response to a question.

This isn't the first 100-day grade Gibbs has issued. He recently told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that the White House press corps deserved "a strong A" for its efforts in covering the first 100 days of the new administration.

"I think they're obviously doing a tough job particularly well," Gibbs said Friday in an interview on "The Situation Room."
