    Default Secret Service blocking reporters at Sarah Palin rallies


    Via Romenesko, the Washington Post's Dana Milbank reveals in an online chat that the Secret Service is stopping people reporters from interviewing people at Palin rallies:

    Arlington, Va.: The Secret Service has now labeled the "kill him" report as unfounded. Why isn't The Post giving this report as much coverage as the original false report received?


    Dana Milbank:

    Glad you asked, because I saw this earlier. This is actually about the incident in Scranton, not the one in Clearwater, Fla, that I wrote about here.

    I wasn't at the Scranton event, but I have to say the Secret Service is in dangerous territory here. In cooperation with the Palin campaign, they've started preventing reporters from leaving the press section to interview people in the crowd. This is a serious violation of their duty -- protecting the protectee -- and gets into assisting with the political aspirations of the candidate. It also often makes it impossible for reporters to get into the crowd to question the people who say vulgar things. So they prevent reporters from getting near the people doing the shouting, then claim it's unfounded because the reporters can't get close enough to identify the person.

    I'm pretty sure McCain has ordered the Secret Service to keep reporters from Palin. Wouldn't want her to get anymore 'gotcha' questions like 'what's your favorite color?'

    This campaign is being run in such a backwards way.
    Excluding all media/reporters from your event?
    If you're so confident in your Mooseballs Shit pick, then why not let her speak her mind?

    Remember, McCain couldn't even say that she was qualified to be VP or President during the debate. All he said was that Palin would be a good partner for him. Right there, he proved that he doesn't think she's qualified, which is why he's hiding her from the media.
