Semi-permanent setup of press corps on the west end of the north White House lawn, from where live media broadcasts with the White House are typically delivered.

The 2008 presidential campaign, ABC News moved Jake Tapper, who had covered Barack Obama during his presidential campaign, to the White House correspondent's position.

Some White House correspondents have come under criticism for not more directly challenging the people they cover. A common criticism of the White House news briefings is that top reporters are given priority access to the Press Secretary and are allowed follow-up questions, while those in the back rows are rarely called upon.
