The host of CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” let something slip at Thursday night’s presidential “town hall” on gun violence that was probably unintended, though long suspected by the general public — that the White House press corps generally agrees with the president’s policies and seldom challenge him on them.
Slam: @andersoncooper said he wanted Obama to take questions from people who disagree w/ him, unlike “so often happens at press conferences”

Cooper explained his reasoning behind having pro-Second Amendment Americans question the president.
“From my perspective, I wanted an intelligence discussion,” Cooper said. “I wanted him to actually address people who disagree with him, not just people who agree with him that so often happens at, you know, a presidential news conference or presidential announcement.”
