Default Re: Palin Ft Bragg Visit Opened To Media, With Restrictions

You either allow it or you don't...saying "I'll allow some aspects of it, but I'll remove constitutional rights on it." is completely unacceptable...
Here's your quote:

"Army officials at Fort Bragg have relented somewhat and now say a small "pool" of journalists will be allowed to cover Sarah Palin's book-tour visit to the base on Monday. However, the journalists won't be permitted to interview Palin or her supporters who attend her book signing. "

Sounds to me like they weren't that keen on having reporters in the first place, and want to keep it to a minimum for control.
Which in light of recent events, they have every right to do.
They have every right to do it anyway since they are the military.
