Keep the press from covering open campaign fundraiser
BuzzFeed's Zeke Miller reports that campaign aides are restricting reporters from a Paul Ryan fundraiser, despite promising days ago that they would not do so:
Presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan's first major fundraiser will be closed to the press, in apparent violation of the Romney-Ryan campaign's oft-strained agreement with the reporters who cover the campaign.
Days after assuring reporters that Ryan would follow the same rules as Romney when determining which fundraisers would be open to reporters, the campaign has apparently changed their tune.
Both campaigns have been guilty of restricting reporters, despite official policies and promises. Thing is, for all the media's kvetching, the public really doesn't seem to care.
