I guess there’s an unwritten understanding that, in exchange for top-level access, they’re not expected to act like journalists (ie ask tough, probing questions and accurately report what they see and hear). Of course, if they don’t do those things, it’s not clear to me why they should get the honor due to pundits, but I guess I just don’t know enough about journalism.
