Politicians are gravitating towards ways to avoid the press?

Surprise, surprise. It seems politicos are drawn to social media because of its ability to let them get their word out without having pesky reporters stick a camera or a mike in their face. My personal take on this is that they could very easily be lulled into a sense of security that could lead to them posting something that they might regret. Provided of course that it’s the politicians who are doing the posting and not some unpaid intern.
