    get to

    "Only the elite few who cover stories nobody cares about get to call themselves journalists?"

    Does this get to have the same meaning as can?

    Re: get to

    I guess it has a similar meaning to get to - definition of get to by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia. (scroll down to v.intr., #2​).
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
