“I mean no disrespect by this question, but I want to ask about the value proposition of these briefings. We’re no longer being briefed by senior-most officers. To the extent that we get information, it’s largely information already released by the Pentagon. You may know that ABC has sent its senior correspondent home. So I guess my question is, why should we stay? What’s the value to us for what we learn at this million-dollar press center?”

Michael Wolff of New York magazine, questioning Brig. Gen. Vincent Brooks at the US press center in Doha, Qatar, 27 Mar 2003
