Did the Code Pink members who interrupted John McCain's speech last night use MSNBC press badges to get into the hall? Not according to Code Pink itself, which claims the two women "obtained passes to the convention from disaffected Republicans."
There is another much more intriguing explanation out there. According to Shay at Booker Rising, which describes itself a newsite for black moderates and black conservatives [emphasis added]:
"I took the shuttle bus back to Minneapolis, and I overheard a convention organizer named Phil telling a convention delegate that the protesters on Wednesday night got through because of media credentials that were traced back to MSNBC (he told her that each credential has an individual bar code for each convention invitee). They suspect MSNBC this time as well."

Code Pink-MSNBC ping to Today show list.
No surprise there’s pMSNBC scabs on this vermin.
Color me surprised - not.
They were all wearing press credentials that had to come from somewhere.
I AM SHOCKED!!!!!!!!!!...............
MSNBC-More Slanted News By Communists
Sounds like they rolled some drunken delegates with sexual favors. They will soon be "disinfected Republicans.
Then Steve Caput should have charges brought against him.
This is not “free speech.” It is the supposedly objective media conglomerates picking a side and trying to suppress
debate. Way over the line.
Better be careful hauling that whale out - you could throw out your back. Or worse than that, catch some skanky disease.
Well, this ought to be easy enough to verify...how fun!
I’m trying the figure out how MSNBC is going to trace this back to Sarah and her daughter as the REAL source of the stinkin’ badges.
The networks were absolutely transparent in their contemptuous treatment of the RNC. Their muckraking of
Governor Palin has been obscene. - Even the cameramen seemed to have been given the word to be on the lookout for ANY distraction during the speeches, so any yawn, nose pick or facial expression was honed in upon and broadcast to distract. - As far as I could see, there was no counterpart to this “Code Pink” garbage at the Democrat cOrOnatiOn & whinefest that has further made the Democrats look like Ned in the First Reader. Ugly behavior by women who SHOULD BE HOME TAKING CARE OF THEIR BABIES INSTEAD.
"In the meantime, will the MSMstarting with MSNBC itselftry to get to the bottom of the story?"
Let is imagine for a moment the MSM reaction if a member of a far right wing fringe group had attempted to rush the stage during the Democrat convention using a Fox News pass.
Aw come on, the GOP would be skewered if they talked this up, and for once rightly so.
Now, you get the security staff to verify "I took this badge off a code pinko, here it is, see the letters M-S-N-B-C?" - then you've got something.
Big surprise. MSNBC is the media arm of the DNC.
