NBC Cuts Deal With White House: Exclusive Access On First Lady’s Africa Trip

My cousin FishBowlDC has a juicy exclusive about an NBC exclusive: “The White House press corps is in an uproar today over the First Lady’s planned trip to Africa. As the trip was announced yesterday, word came out that Mrs. Bush’s press secretary, Susan Dryden Whitson, made an exclusive (and ‘unprecedented,’ in the words of one network vet) deal with NBC to cover the trip — no other cameras will be allowed on the plane and there will be no pool coverage to boot.” Ann Curry will be covering the trip.

“No one in the press corps can remember a time when a network was given exclusive rights to an official White House overseas trip,” Garrett Graff adds.
