Developing: TVNewser has learned all the networks were prepared to ban the use of pictures and video from Gov. Sarah Palin‘s meetings at the UN today. The ban was in protest of the McCain campaign’s restriction on editorial presence.
We hear the networks had arranged for a pool camera to cover all the meetings, and at least three journalists were to be present as well (one print, one radio, one TV). Earlier today, the McCain campaign said it would allow just one editorial person inside. Later, the campaign limited it to a camera only.
Within the last few minutes, the campaign reversed course and will allow a CNN producer in to the meetings.
