Ana Marie Cox in The Washington Post:

Too often, the White House briefing room is where news goes to die. It’s not that the reporters covering the president are bad at their jobs. Most are experienced journalists at the top of their game — and they’re wasted at the White House, where scoops are doled out, not uncovered.

I’d second that.
