Listening to the national media explain why daily on-camera press briefings from the White House are crucial is like listening to a child lay out to his parents all the big reasons he needs a new iPad:

I need it!


I just do!

But even children can be more persuasive. (It will help me with my homework!)

On the other hand, reporters and critical Democrats who insist that American democracy depends on live cameras at the briefings can't offer a single intelligible purpose for them.
