It's perfectly fine, of course, for the White House to put out its own version of events -- but is it right to do so by preventing actual reporters from covering something? (Even something like a pickup basketball game).

Do Obama White House officials think their media coverage isn't flattering enough?

Is the goal to ultimately replace the pesky photographers who film what they want to and not what they're told to (not to mention the annoying reporters who ask uncomfortable questions about, say, detainee policy and bank bailouts)?

So the White House press corps, the most elite and exclusionist group of reporters in the world, gets their panties in a bunch when they're excluded?

Cry me a river. Oh, and get back to me when they let a blogger or indie videographer attend press conferences or interview members of the administration.
