The days of having easy access to federal scientists and their work are over, at least for the time being. 

The LA Times is reporting the Trump administration is tightening rules over media access to federal scientists. 

The change means scientists in many cases will no longer be able to talk directly to the media without first obtaining approval, including for breaking news such as earthquakes and climate change. 

It follows other federal agencies also tightening media access policies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
