I have covered the last two Democratic National Conventions in 2008 and in 2012. This year my media output and coverage is broader than ever before. I am on the White House Press List.
With all of that, you would think the folks running the store for the press over at the Democratic Party would have no problem granting a credential for a third year, right?
Well I applied in February and waited and waited. Then I called last week – May 23rd. A fellow said he would take my name and information and they would follow up.
They followed up alright. With a rejection email. So I am being punished for calling to ask about my credential?
