Plane-Gate: An Update

Earlier on FishbowlDC: “Reporters Booted From Obama Plane?” and “The Obama Plane: The Victims

Friday brought some controversy on the Obama plane: That the Washington Times, Dallas Morning News and New York Post were all denied seats on the Obama plane (all three endorsed John McCain).

Some updates: New York Post Editor-in-Chief Col Allan said, “We are happy to be on the outside looking in. It’s what makes The New York Post special. We are not in the news business to be liked.”

The Dallas Morning News’ Ryan J. Rusak said, “But we don’t have evidence that the newspaper’s endorsement of Sen. McCain had any bearing on the campaign’s decision to boot us from the plane.

A tipster says there were two empty seats on the plane yesterday. And it looks like the Washington Post gets two seats (Dan Balz was on there the other day). The Politico asked for two seats but was only given one. And a pool report from Friday night suggested that there was a second plane for Michelle Obama, although that seems to be gone now (the Obama campaign earlier said that adding a plane would be problematic).
