Romney Relents, Will Allow Press at Fundraiser
After a lot of self-righteous indignation by members of the media over the campaign of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney barring the press from a fundraiser tonight in Israel, the campaign has relented and will allow a press pool at the event. The press will, however, be shuttled out of the event before Romney begins a question and answer session with the donors.
Bloggers and some iReporters on CNN's iReport have also opined their indignation that Romney would not allow the press to cover a fundraiser. Of course Team Obama, the campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama, has done the same at times.
Will the outrage be appeased?
Will the press note how it "won" in a public relations battle with the Romney campaign?
CNN has published a story noting that the press pool will have access. However, on some of the morning talk shows, the word was still that the press was barred.
From the Cornfield, just another day in politics.
