Grilling Michelle Obama

Instapundit asks:
Plus, grilling Michelle: "According to Time, when the Obama camp 'got wind' of the 'whitey' rumor, his aides took it so seriously they confronted Michelle and 'grilled her on the particulars.' So why can't bloggers and reporters do the same thing?"
Because a campaign has to be prepared for damage control and their job is not to give the press bad news for the campaign. Michelle Obama is not the candidate and while the press has the right to pursue the story, it is not the duty of the Obama campaign to put Michelle Obama out there. If the press can come up with better proof of the "whitey" charge then we are talking something different.
