Freedom of Press in the Obama nation?

So, a reporter in Florida asked Biden a few hard questions, and here's the Obama campaign's response:

The Obama spokesperson issued this statement about the interview: "There's nothing wrong with tough questions, but reporters have the very important job of sharing the truth with the public -- not misleading the American people with false information. Senator Biden handled the interview well; however, the anchor was completely unprofessional. Senator Biden's wife is not running for elected office, and there are many other stations in the Orlando television market that would gladly conduct a respectful and factual interview with her." "This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election."

So. . .if he's president, will all press that presents an opposing viewpoint have similar responses?

good for you lady. I wish more people would ask the tough questions. We need doubt to be put in the minds of people in America.
