What the?

From Tuesdays with Rupert "... Obama, on the other hand, was snubbing Murdoch. Every time he reached out (Murdoch executives tried to get the Kennedys to help smooth the way to an introduction), nothing. The Fox stain was on Murdoch. It wasn’t until early in the summer that Obama relented and a secret courtesy meeting was arranged. The meeting began with Murdoch sitting down, knee to knee with Obama, at the Waldorf-Astoria...."

OK, so both campaigns are playing the game of accusing the press of cozying up and giving a free ride to the other side's candidate e.g. the Democrats complaining that McCain is given a pass with respect to his "maverick" image, the Republicans complaining that the press is treating Obama like a rock start, etc., etc. But something like this (if true)?!? Why should Murdoch and Ailes be visiting any candidate in secret?
