Barney Frank: Truthful With The Press

My Examiner colleague Susan Ferrechio dug up this great nugget yesterday:

    “I need to leave the press here so I can tell you the truth,” Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., speaking to someone on his cell phone outside the House chamber as he walked away from reporters after the conclusion of a three-hour House and Senate meeting on the $700 billion bailout package.

New Reporters Join Congressional Standing Committee of Correspondents

From the AP (really?!? The AP is covering this stuff?):

    Reporters from Congressional Quarterly and Bloomberg News will serve as the newest members of the congressional Standing Committee of Correspondents.

    Andrew Taylor of The Associated Press was also unanimously elected as chairman of the panel.

    Alan Ota of Congressional Quarterly and Laura Litvan of Bloomberg News will serve two-year terms starting Jan. 18. They join Taylor, Susan Ferrechio of The (Washington) Examiner and Carl Hulse of The New York Times. Their unopposed election was announced Friday by the present committee.

    Ota and Litvan replace Thomas Ferraro of Reuters and Bill Walsh of The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, the former chair.

Standing Committee of Correspondents Announced

CQ’s Susan Ferrechio, AP’s Andy Taylor and the NYT’s Carl Hulse have been named new members on the congressional press galleries’ five-member Standing Committee of Correspondents for the 110th Congress. They join current chairman Bill Walsh (Newhouse) and Tom Ferraro (Reuters).

Although the technical job of these members is to handle “issues including gallery procedures, accreditation of correspondents and press access throughout the Capitol complex” (to quote the CQ announcement for Ferrechio), the real reason why media organizations jockey to get their peeps on the committee is simple: The committee will play a big role in determining work space at the 2008 National Conventions.
