News Outlets To Contest Romney Campaign Charges

Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins reports that many news organizations, including TV news outlets, that had embedded reporters with the Romney Presidential campaign, are contesting some of the charges.

Coppins explains:

It is standard procedure for presidential campaigns to arrange and pre-pay for meals, bus travel, and charter flights, then bill the news outlets afterward for their share of the cost. In order to travel with the candidate, reporters and their editors must agree upfront to pay for the cost of the trips, as determined by the campaign.

But many of the bills from the Romney campaign — which have continued to trickle in since election day — are much higher than during other campaigns.
