Dissing the media
The pressure must be getting to them. This morning, WBEN reported (but it's not on their site) that the Leg passed new rules for reporters yesterday. Reporters can no longer approach & report on the legislature while it's in session, nor can they speak with legislators while they're on the floor. Also, reporters can't hang around one certain exit, enabling media-shy legislators to slip out without having to answer questions. Hey - who are we to hold them accountable?
