Sweeney Invites Radio Host. (Doh!)
"Sweeney: And, uh, we've invited media in the past, and I'm going to invite you next time, Fred."
Looks pretty clear: Sweeney sees this as his personal event. He invites those he has to thank or suck up to for some reason or another. He draws up the list and has some one else mail the invite, that doesn't cut it. He's like Bush, just tell him the laws and he can sneak around them.
