McCain Camp Yields on Coverage of Palin UN Visit

Sep 23, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The McCain campaign eased its stand at the last minute this afternoon after initially resisting editorial presence for Gov. Sarah Palin’s visit to the United Nations, TVNewser reports. The move came after the networks had indicated they would ban the use of photos and video of the event in protest against the campaign’s restrictions on journalists, the Web site reports. Initially the plan was to use a pool camera for all the governor’s meetings, with three journalists representing print, TV and radio in tow. The McCain camp then limited participation to one editorial person before cutting back further to just a camera. In the end a CNN producer was allowed in to the meetings, the Web site says.
