Many political reporters and journalists are calling out President Obama for his pretentious lecturing on how to do their jobs.
The President rebuked members of the media in a speech on Monday accusing them of superficial reporting and not holding politicians accountable for promises they can’t keep.

CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller:

Huffington Post’s Sam Stein weighed in as well:
