I think Howie Kurtz has a GREAT IDEA!
KOS, please do this!
Washington, D.C.: Do you honestly think that if a person writing for a liberal web-only newsletter, funded by say, Teresa Heinz Kerry, using a false name, applied for a press pass (even a daily one) to the White House, that they would be approved?
I'm really curious if this would work both ways.
Howard Kurtz: Not under a false name, no. But one person who regularly gets cleared into the White House is Russell Mokhiber, who writes for Corporate Crime Reporter and supported Ralph Nader. I think if Kos showed up and asked for a White House day pass (and used his real name, not Kos), he would be let in because he has a popular site. (If not, he would blog about it and we'd have a new controversy.)
KOS - I would love to donate to this effort!
Come On! As Jon Stewart said: 'You know you want to!'
