Stewart and Colbert Rallies Become Prickly Affairs for News Outlets

Yahoo! News’s Michael Calderone has the inside information on which news outlets are forbidding their employees to attend the upcoming Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert competing rallies in Washington. At WaPo, staff were told they can “observe” the rallies, but cannot march, chant, or wear buttons or T-shirts of support. At ABC and NBC journos cannot attend unless they’re covering the event. At NPR, staff cannot attend.

> Update: NPR employees can attend the rallies, but only if covering them. Read about their rules and guidelines here. There are strong suggestions for staff about not slapping on bumper stickers or putting up yard signs. NPR also asks for reader input — what do folks think of management’s rules?
