    Didn't he promise to do that at the begining of his term? And then didn't?

    Until it actually happens I won't be holding my breath.

    As for the hunger strike...meh...don't care. If they want to be idiots thats on them. No one else.

    It's a nice idea and I'm sure they enjoy debating their headlines, but it's not a source for breaking news.

    That would be Breaking News MSM. This would be "youtube news debates possible crap".

    Youtube, totalitarian state press, CT and other such nonsense can be safely ignored. Fringe partisan is the first step toward reliability, though a lowly place to rummage about. MSN/Fox are openly biased, CNN and BBC (state but not exclusive) a bit less so.

    That independent media is general media and does not make it "bad".

    The world is a complicated place and the President is doing the best he can on a wide range of issues. He was just elected into office about a year ago.

    I can't think of a reason they should. The press doesn't have access to a lot of places.... recently the POTUS, specifically no photographers and only white house photographers.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
