Cheney press conference a sham

In a free country, with adequate press coverage, how can anyone claim the “tightly controlled, early morning shakedown and only written questions on cards” event that posed as a meeting between Cheney and the press qualify?

This was a well scripted photo-op with no hardball questions and reporters, I suspect, who were chosen because they would fawn over Cheney (especially the teary-eyed question about running a second time), with enough BS to generate methane for centuries.

Is this the new and improved America Cheney, Bush and Ashcroft are working towards?
