Gannon - Another Lie...
From the Today show:

<<SNIP>>
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/7022981 /

Gannon: I asked to come. They allowed me to come. And apparently there isn't a very high threshold as far as somebody's personal life to gain access.

<</SNIP>>

From Coulter's beauty:

<<SNIP>>
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=108&nci...

But Dowd was talking about two different passes without telling her readers (a process now known in journalism schools as "Dowdification"). Gannon didn't have a permanent pass; he had only a daily pass. Almost anyone can get a daily pass -- even famed Times fantasist Maureen Dowd could have gotten one of those. A daily pass and a permanent pass are altogether different animals. The entire linchpin of Dowd's column was a lie. (And I'm sure the Times' public editor will get right on Dowd's deception.)

<</SNIP>>

Making it seem like it's really no big deal to get a Day Pass. Anyone could probably get one....

But then from of his Freeper posts:

<<SNIP>>

To: Jeff Gannon
"I am one of the only conservatives in the regular White House press corps."
God bless you, and may your tribe increase! :-)

Not likely! There are many obstacles for admittance.

And thanks for you good wishes.

7. And yet another lie
"I am one of the only conservatives in the regular White House press corps."

Hah! The whole friggin' WH press corps along with virtually everybody in the MSM are all right-wing conservatives. Or at least they act like it.
