The White House press corps (or the White House press pool) is the group of journalists or correspondents usually stationed at the White Housemarker to cover White House press briefings and press releases.

The press briefings take place in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. There is no equivalent to the British Parliamentmarker's press gallery at the White House, either as the name of a place or a group of journalists, although at the United States Capitolmarker journalists do occupy galleries of their own at the House of Representatives and Senate chambers. Journalists who specialize in covering the U.S. Congress are known as congressional correspondents.

The White House correspondents have often come under criticism for not challenging the people they cover more directly and for shirking its Fourth Estate responsibility. The White House Press Secretary or a deputy generally holds a daily public news briefing.

When a new President of the United States is elected, the networks change their correspondents, most often to the reporter that was assigned to cover the new president during the preceding campaign. For example, after the 2008 presidential campaign, ABC News promoted Jake Tapper, who had covered Barack Obama during his presidential campaign, to the White House correspondent's position.
