HuffPost Names Attendees of Off-the-Record Meeting with President Obama

The Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone named a group of reporters and columnists President Barack Obama met with – off-the-record – prior to his Wednesday night statement on ISIS.

“The group, which met in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in an off-the-record session, included New York Times columnists David Brooks, Tom Friedman and Frank Bruni and editorial writer Carol Giacomo; The Washington Post’s David Ignatius, Eugene Robinson and Ruth Marcus; The New Yorker’s Dexter Filkins and George Packer; The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg and Peter Beinart; The New Republic’s Julia Ioffe; Columbia Journalism School Dean Steve Coll; The Wall Street Journal’s Jerry Seib; and The Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky, a source familiar with the meeting told The Huffington Post.”

The New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker first reported on Saturday the meeting’s happening, not naming those in attendance, and clarifying that “people unaffiliated with The Times” contributed to his report.
