Video: WH challenged on its own pay discrepancy for women

In light of the kind of administration Barack Obama has chosen to run, maybe he should allow an “audit” period for incoming press secretaries. In the same way undergraduates at most colleges can audit classes before officially enrolling in them, new prospects would have a chance to try out the job before formally signing on.

You have to wonder where Josh Earnest’s head would be after roughly his first week as White House spinmeister. The press is certainly putting him through his paces, as in this frank back-and-forth over the administration’s unexplained pay gap for women working in the White House.
