Making sausage, making news

Most of the time, you can’t see your Capitol press corps at work. Stuff like this doesn’t make the final, polished products of mainstream media. But this is what it looks like when they have questions they want answered, and they go up against someone who doesn’t want to answer them.

The issue being discussed here, filmed by the DFL, is whether Sen. Norm Coleman took a gift of suits from a contributor.

It was a confrontation reminiscent of the legendary White House standoffs between the White press corps and former Bush spokesman Scott McClellan.

    And people wonder why Scott McClellan wrote a book critical of the Bush administration.

    He had a very interesting interview on Fresh Air when his book came out. If I remember right, either Rove or Libby did end up apologizing for telling him that they weren’t involved.
