The courageous fourth estate in the year of our Obamessiah one

At The One's press conferences, the reporters who will be allowed to ask questions are chosen beforehand. According to Carol Marin of the Chicago Sun-Times, they don't even bother to raise their hands any more. (What good would it do?)

We've all seen the clip of the reporter whom His Obamaness stops in mid-question, saying to him, "...let me just cut you off, because I don't want you to waste your question." Haven't we?

What I'm wondering is: if the reporters are chosen beforehand, are the questions, too?
