The press in action

The Smoking Gun has published copies of letters various news hereos sent to the UnaBomber (the real one, not the Mr. Tilly one) to try to get him to consent to an interview.

It's pretty disgusting to see these slime bags in action. By slimebag I don't mean the unabomber, I mean the elite of the American Press Corps.

It shows how much the press is willing to compromise any personal principles they might have in order to gain access. Practicing journalism is all about access. Most successfull journalists will do whatever they need to do, and say whatever they need to say, and report whatever they need to report in order to gain and maintain access.

Woodward and Bernstein were not part of the White House Press Corps.
