Isn’t It News?

Isn’t it news when a presidential candidate lies to the media and won’t give them access? I would think so, but it took an internet news site to get the letter from the networks complaining to the Obama camp about just this behavior. So it’s a big secret he’s more secretive than George Bush? You would think this would be a topic of discussion, a legitimate issue to bring to the public’s attention, especially since it involves them. (If we have learned anything it is that media is notoriously egocentric.) But we have nary a word of public complaint or a harsh story on Obama’s cocoon existence. Hmm. Could it be that “the right of the people to know” and their professional dignity are small beans compared to their mandate to assist their favorite son candidate?
