Pussycat press

: Matt at 1115.org (a good blog with which I intermittently agree and not) has a worthwhile discussion about the tactics of a press corps that goes for getting in its questions more than getting answers, a press corps that doesn’t keep pushing until it gets answers.

    Has anyone ever determined if the behavior of the press at Presidential news conferences changed once those sessions were carried on TV?
    I’d bet on it. There’s a world of difference between asking a question in relative privacy aimed at getting your story carried in your paper or on the wires, versus asking a question on camera aimed at getting a good 45-second piece for the evening news show (emphasis on the show).
