On this episode of Blaming the Messenger, the Daily Free Press discusses President Ronald Reagan and his “controlled access” policy with the media, as well as President Bill Clinton and the impeachment saga. Oh, and we’ll also talk about President George H. W. Bush., a media traditionalist sandwiched between two presidents who dramatically changed the executive branch’s interactions with the media.
