News media protest White House press access limits

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dozens of leading news organizations protested to the White House today against restrictions that sometimes keep journalists from taking pictures and video of President Barack Obama performing official duties. At the same time, two press groups urged their members to stop using official photos and video handed out by the White House, dismissing them as little more than “government propaganda.” The news organizations’ letter to White House press secretary Jay Carney detailed a number of recent examples in which photographers weren’t allowed to cover presidential events that were deemed “private” by administration officials - even though the White House indicated their newsworthiness by releasing its own photos of the same events.
