Obama Campaign Manager: Entertainment Tonight and People Mag 'Equally Important' to Press Conferences

President Obama's deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter made an astonishing statement on CNN's State of the Union Sunday.

According to her, the current White House resident giving interviews to Entertainment Tonight and People magazine are "equally important" to doing an actual press conference with the national news media (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

In the midst of his interview with Cutter, substitute host Jim Acosta said, "Mitt Romney this week had two news conferences. President Obama had zero. As a matter of fact, the President hasn’t had any news conferences for nearly two months. When should we expect one?"

"Well, you know, the President was talking to reporters on the ground in Iowa," Cutter replied. "Do you think that that’s less important than talking to somebody like you?"

Ouch. That's a little backhanded.

She continued, "You know, everywhere the President goes, he’s talking to reporters.He’s traveling the country. We’re running for reelection. Iowa is a critical state. We’re going to spend our time talking to media all over this country."

"Entertainment Tonight, People magazine, he did that as well,” countered Acosta. “Are they more important than the national news media?”

“I don’t think that they’re more important," said Cutter, "but I think they’re equally important. I think that’s where a lot of Americans get their news. And I think the President’s going to continue doing that.”

So, the President going on Entertainment Tonight or being interviewed by People magazine is “equally important” to actually doing a press conference.

I guess this is the real transparency of Hope and Change.

I think it's true that a lot of Americans get their info from unseemly places. I wouldn't even say 'they get their news' because it's subjective, people who think Jon Stewart is a real source of 'news' are voting. That's what sucks.

Wow. They're letting Cutter show her face again after she was caught red-handed lying about the facts about that guy who blamed Romney for his wife's death?

She passed her initiation by lying about Romney.

First, based on their cult of personality followers, that's true.

Second, the national news media is a joke.

Third, the less I hear from the Marxist in Chief, the better.

Stephanie Cutter.

She's a lying liar that was caught in a lying lie. Why is CNN even giving her airtime? She's only going to lie about anything she says.

My wife reads people.com all the time; and then complains to me about some of the stupid, ignorant, and extremely childish comments on the articles. I in turn tell her to quit reading that liberal garbage of a site.

Again, if the shoe was on the other foot, the cries from the left would be deafening.

I wonder if radio morning shows are just as important...

I keep waiting for one of these media tools to get fed up with being lied to and just snap.

And, yes, Virginia, there is media bias.
