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