Canadian journalism at its pique

Stephen Harper’s got something here.

…members of the [Canadian] press gallery simultaneously got up and left, moments before the prime minister arrived in the room, in an act of defiance against new news conference rules imposed against the media.

Two questions; don’t these guys realize Harper’s OK with not being able to bask in their glorious presence, and how can George Bush get Helen Thomas to do the same thing?

OK, three questions – how are any news conference rules established by the person granting the conference “imposed” “against” the media? I mean they can just leave, right?
