Thanks for looking, and I appreciate your comments.
There is no doubt in my mind that this is a coordinated assault from our "friends" on the Left side of the aisle. The redoubtable Rep. Slaughter's blatherings serve as confirmation.
These clowns are so transparent- let us hope the public is catching on to them.
this might be added to the list.
A freeper directed it too me.
Not only is dailykos on the Dean payroll....it seems,while misrepresenting how press passes are obtained, kos folks mention how they have a nice little contact in ...
Howar Kurtz- Wonder if this may be the kos "investigator" that Kurtz and others have mentioned.
There's no indication in the column of when McClellan said this, however. Kurtz did get one important thing out in the open: that Gannon uses a pseudonym "he declines to reveal." (No one has yet attempted an explanation of why the Secret Service would approve a "reporter" with a false name, which tells me that they know very well what his real name is.) In an effort to find out a bit more, and to see if he could tell me how to apply for White House press credentials, I called Kurtz. But he never called me back. I guess when you're a big-time columnist, you're awfully busy.
However, a long-time friend who writes for one of our larger metropolitan dailies was able to give me the name and phone number of the person who handles administrative matters for their international news desk. That person was extraordinarily helpful and, once I had explained that I was trying to discover the process to apply for White House press credentials, offered to call the DC bureau for me.
The information returned from the large metropolitan daily's Washington bureau confirmed what I suspected all along: Anyone seeking a White House press pass must write, on official letterhead, to Jeff's friend Scottie."
