White House Revokes Press Passes for Dozens of Journalists
from Columbia Journalism Review
In what appears to be an unprecedented move, the White House revoked the press passes of a significant chunk of the Washington press corps because they didn’t meet a new standard, according to Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. Under the new rules, rolled out earlier this year, in order to qualify for the highest level of access — known as a “hard pass” — journalists had to be present in the White House for at least 90 days out of a 180-day period.
