Precedented: Tip O'Neill Refused a Reagan Request To Address the House; Will Media Correct?

The media reported it as a verified fact that it was "unprecedented" that any Speaker had refused a President's request for a joint session.

Well, Tip O'Neill refused Reagan's request to appear before the House. Not a joint session, but just the House; Tip O'Neill said no.

Tip O'Neill

He hated blacks.
