The media and sources
KCMO's Chris Stigall interviewed MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski today. She said anytime a White House official wants to come on her program they're welcome. Asked if conservatives were welcome she said it depends on their score on the BS meter. Sounds like BS is okay from government officials, but other sources may not be as welcome. This is typical of the way journalists handle sources. Official sources get airtime anytime, but it's harder if your are not on the "approved" source list.
