Do they ever wonder why they have no access?

We've suggested previously that the Chronicle's slant on the news, combined with its editorial stance, probably limits the access of the newspaper's D.C. bureau to Texans who are part of the governing majority in Washington.

As a case in point, here's a snippet from Samantha Levine's latest column:

Cornyn also had to explain the seeming conflict between his legislative goal of opening federal records and his defense of the White House's decision to keep secret some papers related to Roberts' past government service.

Cornyn recently wrote a bill to improve "the accessibility, accountability, and openness of the federal government."

What's the conflict?

We're pretty sure Sen. Cornyn understands the concepts of attorney-client privilege and separation of powers, even if Miss Levine does not (or, we should say, even if she acts like she does not in order to portray Sen. Cornyn as a hypocrite).
