***WARNING*** Impolite criticms of the President within ***WARNING***
This is the sort of thing I dreamed about doing when I was more politically active; take a politician's press conference and splice it up and ask all the questions and make all the comments you wish the press corps would ask and make. Those who think the press is too hard on politicians don't understand the role of the press in a democracy. They cannot be too critical of politicians. They are the ones we depend on to ferret out the information on what the politicians are doing so we can make informed decisions at the ballot box. A press friendly with politicians is a press reneging on its resposibility to the citizens of this country.
