Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

Newspeople remain silent.

If you run a government operation-these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:
