Press stunts at briefings show how useless Fourth Estate has become

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

These daily jousting sessions expose just how far out of their depth these “reporters” are when confronted with the actual president, rather than some lower-level designate. Covering the White House or Congress or presidential campaigns is not the “front row of history” or writing the “first draft of history.” Actually, it is a responsibility. A responsibility to ask smart, tough questions on behalf of the millions of Americans who do not get that opportunity yet have the responsibility to be informed so that they can make good decisions during elections. Nothing gets the White House press’ knickers in a bunch like protecting their own honor.
