    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.
    To be clear, then, there is nothing mandating that the White House take an interview from any particular news agency. They still should've, though

    If they report other than that they can be sued for defamation of character and libel and such things.
    Thank you

    Actually, it was a super dumb move for the WH to come out with this stance. First thing is that they were trying to intimidate the other news agencies in the news pool, and by denying FOX initially, they set themselves up for the embarrassment that followed when they had to back down and allow them.

    Childish and petty.

    They tried to exclude fox because they want all dissent squashed, they tried to exclude fox because all dissenters must be punished, they tried to exclude fox because Obama is a corporatist and a fascist.

    They tried to exclude Helen Thomas because they wanted all dissent squashed and because all dissenters must be punished, and they conspicuously included Jeff Gannon because he was a gay male "escort" who dressed in camouflage g-strings who was eager to be their phony reporter shill.
