Always conforting to hear that folks running the DoD sound like petty dickwads:<br><br>
"Staffers at McClatchy's Washington, D.C., Bureau -- <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><i>one of the few major news outlets skeptical of intelligence reports during the run-up to the war in Iraq</i></span> -- claims it is now being punished for that coverage.<br><br>
"Bureau Chief John Walcott and current and former McClatchy Pentagon correspondents say they have not been allowed on the Defense Secretary's plane <b>for at least three years</b>, claiming the news company is being <span style="text-decoration:underline;">retaliated</span> against for <span style="text-decoration:underline;">its reporting</span>.<br><br>
"It is because our coverage of Iraq policy has been quite critical," Walcott told E&P. He added, "I think the idea of public officials barring coverage by people they've decided they don't like is at best unprofessional, at worst undemocratic and petty."<br><br>
