White House press corps should adopt a ‘talk to all of us or none of us’ policy: Royson James

Excerpt from Royson James' column:
"The Star’s Ford coverage proved to be at the leading edge of public service journalism. All the news outlets — jealous at the Star’s enterprise and zealous in smarmy attempts to curry favour with the Fords and gain an 'exclusive' or two — had to eat crow by the end.
"The chief magistrate was totally and woefully unfit to lead his subjects and might have fooled the masses had the Star not done its journalistic duty — bark at the first sign of trouble, verify the extent of the trouble the next day, provide ongoing context and analysis each day after."
