John Hood takes the NC House Republican Caucus to task for holding closed door briefings with lobbyists from the video poker industry, among other things:

• Good idea: Talking to the press, and thus to the electorate, about legislative issues and personal business related to legislative issues.

• Bad idea: Ejecting the News & Observer’s Andy Curliss from last week’s caucus meeting, then giving him poorly reasoned responses to his legitimate questions and expecting the experienced reporter not to follow up with well-researched, hard-hitting articles.
