2. Reporters crave access to folks in power more than just about anything. If the Nation thinks
that it has to suck up to the current administration to keep getting stories, it will do and say almost anything. Remember the NYT scandal? How they whored themselves (literally) to keep those all important "White House sources" talking? If the NYT will do it, any news outlet will do it.

This is why we need a BBC style truly public news organization.
