Whatever you think about the Huffington Post question, it seems like more and more media outlets and personalities are now challenging President Obama's relationship with the mainstream media. Dana Milbank, who was extremely critical of the Bush administration, raised an interesting point at the end of the segment that conservatives have been talking about for months.
In regards to the ABC health care special last week (and in many ways, the Pitney question) Milbank said, "I think the White House is trying to exploit the media in ultimately bringing them in bed with him."
It is unclear whether such a discussion will cause greater scrutiny of the White House from the media but regardless of its effect, the discussion about media coverage of the Obama administration (and the administration's relationship with the media) is clearly an important one to have, especially after the Huffington Post question controversy and the heavily-criticized health care forum last week.
