Again, Private or Not

Makes me happy when the dean of my old school agrees with me on something:

“I am very disappointed in President Obama for trying to limit press access,” said Lorraine Branham, dean of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University … “You cannot say it is private and then turn around and put out photos.”

Also from this Mike Davis piece on access to the president at Time’s Lightbox blog:

“Those visual press releases are only part of the story,” said Associated Press Director of Photography Santiago Lyon. I asked Lyon if he thinks the White House-released photos accurately depict life in the White House: “We wouldn’t know because we’re not allowed access into the events that are depicted.”
