The reporter is Neil Munro of the Daily Caller. Tucker Carlson, the editor of the DC, defended Munro for his questioning.
"Yes, that was TheDC's Neil Munro who dared question the president in the Rose Garden," Carlson tweeted. "Everyone's defying precedent today, it seems."
"This is what reporters are supposed to do," he later told the Huffington Post. "They're supposed to get their questions answered."
Comment from the White House is pending, but Carlson has said that White House press secretary Jay Carney has emailed him asking to talk.
While announcing a new change in immigration policy, Munro yelled, "Why'd you favor foreigners over Americans?”
“Excuse me, sir, but it’s not time for questions," Obama said.
“Are you going to take questions?” Munro asked.
“Not while I’m speaking.” Obama said.
Munro is the same reporter who earned the ire of Attorney General Eric Holder last year for a series of articles about the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal.
"We are very proud of, @NeilMunroDC for doing his job," the DC tweeted.
They should be proud of Munro. This is journalism, as compared to the rest of the lapdogs who have the nerve to call themselves "journalists."

Neil Munro, White House Correspondent: “I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.”
Tucker Carlson, Editor-in-Chief: “I don’t remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan. And she shouldn’t have. A reporter’s job is to ask questions and get answers. Our job is to find out what the federal government is up to. Politicians often don’t want to tell us. A good reporter gets the story. We’re proud of Neil Munro.”
Neil Patel, Publisher: “The President today announced a very controversial policy and does not want to answer tough questions about it. Neil Munro is a veteran Washington reporter who today tried his best to time his question to be first as the President was wrapping up his remarks. He in no way meant to heckle the President of the United States.”
Of course, if Munro hasn't gone yet, he probably won't receive an invitaton to the White House Chirstmas Party for the press. Unlike past administrations, The Regime has a habit of not inviting reporters they don't like, including some veteran press corps members, to this event.
