Bloggers in White House Press Room?

Fellow bloggers, please read this New York Times article about a lawsuit just filed by the Baltimore Sun. The lawsuit asserts that the Governor of Maryland does not have the legal right to decline interviews with several Sun reporters the governor believes are refusing to present facts objectively.

If the Baltimore Sun can convince a court that it has a “First Amendment right” to interview the governor of Maryland and his staff against their will, don’t we bloggers have a “First Amendment right” to interview any government official we wish to? You bet we do.

If the Sun suit has merit.

Addendum: Jeff at The Shape of Days has posted some fun comments about this issue.
