the next member of the bush family on a ballot appears to be moving away from the family name. george p. bush, son of jed, says he's more like former house speaker newt gingrich than his presidential grandson and uncle. he is a movement conservative. he is kushtly making his first bid for public office as land commissioner in texas. john boehner lashed out at the far right of his party. last week boehner said groups like heritage action lost credibility following the government shutdown and the house budget chairman shares those frustrations. >> i think john just got his irish out. he was frustrated that the groups came out before we reached our budget agreement. ways frustrated, too. i think these are very important elements of our conservative family. i would prefer to keep the conversations within the family. i think he was voice ing his frustration. >> pope frances says he knows a lot of communists but he is not

reporter david nakamura. 38 media organizations wrote this letter to the white house last week claiming that this administration is blocking the public from having an independent view of the executive branch of government. now david, of course, you cover the white house for "the washington post." i want to get your take on this. do you think this is a fair assessment? >> i think so. this has been a long standing issue for the press association and its grown more of a concern over time with the obama administration. this is an era, of course in, which everybody is able to access social media and publish their own photos. the swhous very good at that. they have a good robust website. facebook page and they're able to then take that and use their own photographs to sort of put out an image they sthi problthi burnished and edited and the press association might like. this is an issue on anything from private meetings to when the president went out and played golf with tiger woods. they kept the media in the van. people say that is superficial.
what do we need to get out of that? this issue of whether the president is going to south africa shaking hands with raul castro or taking selfies. we have to see that. if the white house put the photos out there if they only had their own photographer is unlikely. there is skepticism until they work with the press as to whether we're going to get into the private meetings. how much do you blame this on social media? >> well, it is. the president was very obviously forward thinking on this back in 2008. they have an e-mail list that numbers in the tens of millions. they use it to their advantage. no one really faults him for that. that is important to do. the question is, this is a big media pact that really wants to be in there. there is a lot of pressure going on. jay carney took questions on this and he got peppered. he said he would pay a lot of hommage to photographers, particularly reporters trying to
get in there and they're saying they're trying to strike a balance. some of meetings are private. but other time, i think is only twice that photographers have been in the oval office without anybody else to photograph the president and, you know, privately, private moments he was on the phone both time. they said that is not enough is what this media association is saying. >> all right, david, always nice to see you, my friend. >> thank you. coming up next, bill and richard will join us for "first buzz ow" and unnerving backyard scene for a florida home ener. ♪ i want to spread a little love this year ♪
