Questioning the president of China

In the above video, Mark Landler of The New York Times describes the extraordinary moment when he questioned the Chinese president about visas for American journalists.

"He just looked irritated," Landler said. "He looked like a kind of a guy who's not used to having people talk back to him."

Also: in this web-exclusive clip, Landler explains how the White House gives reporters a subtle heads-up before they might be called on by the president at a press conference.
