    Over the years I have been very impressed with their reportage but but not so much with Christian Scientist approach to medicine. Then again my great grandmothetr a devote CS lived to 100.

    The White House doesn't have "rights". I would like to see where in the Constitution the "rights" of the Executive Branch are enumerated. Because, in reading the Constitution, the Executive Branch has duties and they have certain powers but I don't see any listing of Rights.

    Rights are given to the people to protect them from abuses of the government's power. Not vice versa.

    For individual access, but not when they've granted general access to others . . . like a general media press event.

    When you can see, here, and record everything in the room,You have more than enough to do your job as a reporter.


    The difference is reporting the news and participating/being the news.


    The connection/analogy here does not exist.

    True.

    Let me rephrase it then. The public doesn't have unlimited access to White House press conferences. The reason why Obama backed down wasn't because of the First Amendment (which is not relevant as no one was being censored), but because the news networks banded together. If they didn't, Fox would have gotten the boot already.

    I don't find his attempt tyrannical in the least. Why would you invite a news agency to a top level press conference that is just going to twist your words and make you the enemy?

    There's a body of caselaw which works against you here.

    Pell v. Procunier

    United States v. Connolly

    Sherrill v. Knight

    Getty Images News Serv. Corp. v. Dep’t of Def.

    Nation Magazine v. U.S. Dep’t of Def.

    Anderson v. Cryovac, Inc.

    Westinghouse Broad.Co., v. Dukakis

    Borreca v. Fasi

    Quad-City Cmty. News Serv., Inc. v. Jebens

    Snyder v. Ringgold

    et al.

    Generally, they recognize a 1st Amendment principle where, if you're having a general press event, you can't exclude hand-picked members of the press, particularly based on viewpoint.
