Justin WebbJustin Webb, an expert on US politics,  recently discussed in the Times that the daily White House briefing could end as President Obama keeps a tight grip on his image.

Justin argues that the White House briefing exists because “openness and transparency should be the hallmark of a modern democracy and that folks should be able to ask straight questions and have them answered in public.” However, Justin explains that trouble exists in the fact that people get replies, rather than answers, to the briefing. He goes on to say that “Americans know the president through social media and the man you know is the man they want you to know.”
