    That is a laugh–Our totally unbiased, freedom of the press, 100% accurate national news media thinks the President should be barred from having his news conferences televised? How about the “unbiased” reporters in the audience stop baiting the Pres. with their self-opiniated questions directed at gaining themselves attention instead of telling the public what they need to know to handle this tremendous disruption of our society.

    This, fortunately, is not a representation of all media sources. It is unfortunate that amid a national crisis this type of journalism is still rearing its ugly head. Even as far back as high school journalism I was taught to write from the heart of the story, not from the heart of my opinion. Perhaps if more journalists would remember this simple rule the people of this nation could begin to rebuild their trust in newspapers nation wide. I remember a time when the National Enquirer was still considered gossip, not gospel. Responsible reporting is a dying art that needs to be resurrected.
