Oh, sweetie, there's a perfectly simple explanation for all that! That darned old liberal media went to journalism school and learned a bunch of rules and shit, many of which are designed to protect the "mark" from unnecessary embarrassment or harassment. A code of conduct if you will. That's why we turned our heads when Dan Rather tripped up while collecting the very real dirt on l'il George when he got arrested in Alabama for drugs and coulodn't show up for National Guard duty cause he was out pickin' up trash on the highway (all true, but would've required the "tough" questions.)The Liberal Media why they won’t ask ‘Tough Questions’!! The answer is pretty simple they fear they’ll be denied’ Access’ to the President!! But you idiots created the Messiah and you have the Power to bring this administration to its Knees by simply doing Your Jobs!! ASKING TOUGH QUESTIONS!!
Now when you go to journalism school in the basement of the mormon church... you are - reasonably enough - not bound by any such strictures. Quite the contrary you're bound only by your three wives and your holy underwear.
