Getting a daily press pass from the White House—or not

Since Gannon/Guckert managed to obtain a daily press for almost two years, it is important to understand the process.

Garrett M. Graff of FishBowlDC, "a gossip blog about Washington, D.C. media" has been trying to obtain such a pass so that he may report on—what else?—the White House's morning press gaggle.

He has been posting the blow-by-blow details, so to speak.

Here's his scoreboard after two days' effort:

Fishbowl: 0
White House: 2

Phone Calls: 10 (includes two calls to the Press Office to check on the gaggle time)
Trips to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: 1

Humiliation Factor: Low
Frustration Factor: Medium (Rising)

This should be fun to watch.
