Day Pass

Boehlert finally nails down the issue of the WH "day passes." It is truly a good thing that it's pretty easy for reporters who don't normally cover the white house beat to be able to do it on occasion. But, Gannon had a perpetual day pass - he was there constantly for 2 years.

Boehlert and Lockhart mention the Kinsolving issue. I watched Kinsolving all through the Clinton years -- I never had any respect for him, but it never occurred to me to suggest that the Clinton administration should boot him. As much of a clown as he was, he was the opposition. There's a difference between letting a partisan hack who opposes the administration and a partisan hack who provides cover for the administration in to these things.
