just great! And while I don’t usually say this, read the comments.
It just makes me laugh. Random pee tests for WH journalists. I also think that there should also be a mandatory NSA pat-down for any reporter who attends the briefing. The exact same one as in the airport–the two things should be strongly linked, and if the airport procedures change, so would those of the briefings.
I mean, there are things we don’t want people to bring to Presidential press briefings. And there may be additional procedures, too. If it saves just one life, it’s worth it. Right? We don’t need to wait until after there has been a tragedy to act. Time to be safe now! If it’s good enough for airports, it’s certainly good enough for Presidential press briefings!
