Democrats Try to Give Presidential Powers to the Press

While watching the White House press conference last Friday afternoon and reading the reaction during the last two days I have become convinced that members of the press, and by extension their handlers in the Democratic Party, believe that the press holds some of the powers that are actually held by the President under our constitutional system. One could reasonably say that they (the press and the Democrats) have been arguing that the NY Times and other media outfits have the absolute right to declassify top secret government information, whereas the President of the United States holds no such power. Their new slogan could be “Power to the Unelected People!” I wonder if they can get a hit song out of that one.
