Then again, it’s not like the MSM rump-swabbers would dare criticize Chicago Jesus.

NEW YORK — President Barack Obama will have lunch Tuesday with several broadcast and cable news anchors in anticipation of the evening’s State of the Union address.

The annual lunch, in which the president lays out his policy proposals before influential members of the media covering the address, is off the record. However, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, an attendee in recent years, has made it a tradition of providing viewers with a detailed rundown of the menu, though not the details of what was discussed, after the meal.

The Huffington Post has confirmed that “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley, “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams, “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir, ABC News chief anchor and “Good Morning America” co-host George Stephanopoulos, “PBS NewsHour” co-anchor Judy Woodruff and NPR’s “All Things Considered” senior host Robert Siegel will be attending.
