PM wants to control the dialog

CBC: Harper says he's finished with Ottawa press corps:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he'll no longer give news conferences for the national media, after a dispute led a number of journalists to walk away from an event when he refused to take their questions.

I expect a head of state to be able to deal with any question or situation that comes at them effectively and with grace. The fact that our PM is unable to deal with reporters' questions is a sign of great weakness.
