The White House Beast

When Bill Clinton tried to chain up the White House press corps, the correspondents rebelled.

But can the expert media tamer keep the snarling beast at bay? Jacob Weisberg gets in the cage with ABC’s Brit Hume, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, The Washington Post’s Ann Devroy, The New York Times’s Gwen Ifill, U.P.I.’s Helen Thomas, and the rest. via Vanity Fair
