Wilson's view was that the press and president were in a partnership.

Glad to see nothing has changed.

wait!  I thought Obama invented the press conference and the state of the union address to be an attention whore.  before him, the president stayed chained to his desk 16 hours a day with only 15 minute breaks every other hour to eat or poop, but not both.  but you can't put a black man in chains, that would be racist.

But Bush the junior perfected the:
"ask me the wrong question and you are banned".
"if any of your colleagues then ask me the same question, they are banned".

/Many politicians in North America then emulated it and Anonymous was born.

No, but if you were Wilson you could remove as many from government service as possible and then institute racial segregation in the departments you couldn't "purify". The US has never recovered from his actions.

Funny, nobody ever remembers that...
