The Honeymoon phase of the Washington press corps’ relationship with President Perfect appears to be over. At issue is the way the Obama team handled the “do over” of the flubbed presidential oath, Tuesday evening, inviting a select few print reporters, but denying access to photographers and TV cameras. This Politico story suggests that noses are also out of joint over ABC’s exclusive inauguration evening interview (a brief and entirely lame stand-up backstage at the DC Neighbourhood Ball) accorded to a network that just happened to be sponsoring the event. And some people’s name cards were misspelled.
