Why? Jessica Yellin speculates…
Ahh, the free press isn’t so free after all, eh?
Regardless of what the national mood is, the press needs to act like the press. That’s why they’re there. I realize that it might be hard for network execs to face the scrutiny of being called traitors for reporting what they know, but that’s a hazard of the job. The press doesn’t exist to be liked.
So please, for everybody’s benefit, do your jobs already.
