Robert Gibbs Stands Up to Chinese for U.S. Press; Demands they be Allowed into Meeting - Video 12/18/09
Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs yesterday in Copenhagen standing up to the Chinese in behalf of the American Press Corps as they were being shut out of a press conference on events related to the "Climate Change Summit." The Chinese press had pushed their way to the front and filled the room before the American reporters could get in. As Gibbs was trying to push into the room, Chinese officials were telling him "No, No" on letting any more reporters into the room. Gibbs told the Chinese, "If my guys don't get in, we're leaving the meeting."
CNN's Rick Sanchez comments on the video, calling it "amazing," and then proceeds to mimick the Chinese officials saying, "No, No, No."
