An open letter to Trump from the US press corps - Columbia Journalism Review

Access is preferable, but not critical. You may decide that giving reporters access to your administration has no upside. We think that would be a mistake on your part, but again, it’s your choice. We are very good at finding alternative ways to get information; indeed, some of the best reporting during the campaign came from news organizations that were banned from your rallies. Telling reporters that they won’t get access to something isn’t what we’d prefer, but it’s a challenge we relish.
Tough talk from an organization that thus far has been wholly ineffective.

We will set higher standards for ourselves than ever before. We credit you with highlighting serious and widespread distrust in the media across the political spectrum. Your campaign tapped into that, and it was a bracing wake-up call for us. We have to regain that trust. And we’ll do it through accurate, fearless reporting, by acknowledging our errors and abiding by the most stringent ethical standards we set for ourselves.
This might be the most important thing. Legit media will need to give us a reason to trust them again. Drum out folks like Williams and O'Reilly who embarrass the integrity of the job and it will go a good ways to righting the ship.

That'll be a challenge since they'll be reporting things that are patently absurd (yet true) every day.
