Blogs: Not real enough for the White House
» More Media
The White House must be super skittish after they super fucked up the whole Jeff Gannon/James Guckert press scandal (which we lovingingly refer to as simply JGJG), because they’re denying legitimate press, err, legitimate websites, err, no, how about legitimate blogs (is there such a thing?) credentials to cover the simplest of simple: the morning presser.
Mediabistro’s FishbowlDC just wanted an insider’s look at how the cogs turn at the House That Iraqi Lives Built, but after an excruciating wait (twenty damn minutes yo!) their minions received a curt, but official, “no.”
Hmmm, this sounds vaguely familiar to the time we tried getting entrance to Denise Rich‘s Hamptons fundraiser based on “legitimate interests” only to find out we were the enemy.
