Our Favorite Press Coverage of the DNC Press Coverage So Far

CJR‘s Justin Peters breaks down the reporters at the DNC by the numbers. There are 15,000 journalists attending the event. Peters starts with:

14,000 are wearing terrible suits.

And continues:

1,026 are drunk. This is as it should be.

500 don’t have credentials, but are trying desperately to get them. The credentialing process occurs in a Hampton Inn about a forty-minute walk from the Pepsi Center. Each morning, reporters have to come and claim their credentials for that particular day. The media members are separated by medium-newspaper reporters on one floor, magazine reporters on another, multimedia reporters on another. CJR’s credentials are issued from the leftovers pile (third floor). It’s Denver’s answer to the Island of Misfit Toys-bloggers, activists, eighteen-year-olds, men wearing giveaway T-shirts, men complaining about having to pay eleven dollars for parking. One intrepid credentialee is so devoted to his job that he is videotaping the room, like a tourist. A DemBot hustles over and stops him. “There is a lot of sensitive material in this room,” he says. There is most definitely not.

Then Peters lets us know that 7 of these journalists are having their picture taken with Captain Morgan.

Yep, that’s the word from CJ ‘Arrrr’.
