reporters chased

If You’re Wondering About a Dirth of TV Reports About Today’s White House Stunt

It’s because the police were literally chasing away camera-armed reporters from the scene. Notes Politico‘s Ben Smith: “People who have covered the White House for years tell me that’s an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests.”

So while this shouldn’t preclude the likes of MSNBC and CNN from covering the protest, it helps explain why they may not be enthusiastic to make a bigger story out of it — because they don’t have tape.
