Kissing Donald Trump‘s ass will only get you so far!
The Standing Committee of Correspondents, the panel that approves media credentials to cover Congress, just denied Breitbart permanent credentials!
On Tuesday, the committee voted unanimously to table an application from the conservative news network and decided NOT to extend the site’s temporary credentials past May 31.
The committee has raised questions whether the site’s editors are affiliated with advocacy groups for the federal government — which is a big no no.
Since former media outlet head Steve Bannon is now explaining how government works to the president, it’s hard to see Breitbart as editorially independent of any interest group.
Breitbart is still “determined to secure” the Senate Press Gallery credentials it says it’s entitled to, so we’ll see if Bannon can get Tiny Hands to make a phone call.
