It’s refreshing to hear a politician put a reporter in his place. Let me be perfectly clear, so you don’t misunderstand: I think it’s the job of the media to put the politicians in their place. The politcians role is to protect their constituents from the abuse of their own power. The media is the watchdog that should ensure this happens.
The tables have been turned with today’s ultra-left media, however, and there are times when a politician actually has a better understanding of the limits of government than the media does. This is exaclty what happened when New Jersey Governor Chris Christie encountered one unsuspecting reporter.
