Spoiled Brat Media

Thomas Sowell on our "Spoiled brat media"
There is nothing in the Constitution or the laws that says that the media have a right to be in the White House at all, much less to have press conferences.

This has become a customary courtesy over the years, but courtesy is a two-way street, except for those in the media who act like spoiled brats, as if they have some inherent right to whatever serves their institutional, career, or ideological purposes.

The media love to wrap themselves in the mantle of 'the public's right to know' but there is no such dedication to that right when it goes against the journalists' own prejudices.
As in partial birth abortions and John Kerry's war records.
The "public's right to know" apparently extends only to such things as will not cause the public to reach conclusions different from those of the liberal media.
Read the whole thing.

Very good article indeed! It is high time that the media is told publicly that the public's right to be protected from onesided - often wrong - information is more important than the publics right to know.

Interesting site. keep up the good work!
