    Why would the media accept such constraints? The media has long taken pride in its Constitution granted right to have access to, and the responsibility to report what our leaders are doing on our behalf.

    “It’s not something I’m particularly proud of because there’s a part of me that says, ‘Don’t do it, don’t agree to their terms,’ ” admitted Major Garrett, a correspondent for The National Journal. “There are times when this feels like I’m dealing with some of my editors. It’s like, ‘You just changed this because you could!’”

    Peters noted that outlets as varied as Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Reuters and, of course, The New York Times all caved to accepting interview rules under such terms.

    Jake Tapper appears to be one of the few that do not tow the line.

    President Obama and Hillary Clinton told a bold faced lie recently when they stated that Stevens the Ambassador was carried by Libyans through the streets in an effort to save his life....and none of the press called them on it. We now know that Stevens was sodomized and dead as he was being dragged through the streets where he 12 hrs. later ended up at the hospital.
