This article examines how certain members of the press dealt with Dr. Judith Steinberg Dean's tenuous claims to privacy. The press has been spilling an awful lot of ink on Dr. Judith Steinberg Dean and her absence from her husband's presidential campaign. But, when Dean's wife unexpectedly showed up at the former Vermont governor's side for a campaign rally in Iowa last weekend--a move, no doubt, prompted by all the media scrutiny--the press wimped out. After Judy Dean addressed a rally in Davenport, she, her husband, and the reporters covering the Dean campaign boarded a bus for the 90-minute drive to another rally in Cedar Rapids. But, while the Deans were happy to talk to the press on the ride there, they would do so, the campaign stipulated, only if the conversation was off the record. Which is why it's disappointing that, of the many reporters covering Dean, only four of them--The Boston Globe's Glen Johnson, The Washington Post's John Harris, Newsday's Anne Hoy, and The Philadelphia Inquirer's Tom Fitzgerald--refused to abide by those ground rules and so were sequestered in a separate vehicle.
