FOX bans photographers at news conferences

The Associated Press is balking at FOX's rule banning photographers at FOX news conferences. Yes, you read correctly.


Fox has asked journalists to accept handout photos from photographers it has hired. The news cooperative says Fox's decision interferes with its ability to fully report the event and sets a bad precedent.

Television networks bring executives and stars to a Los Angeles-area conference center twice a year to meet with journalists from across the country.

Unless Fox allows it to send photographers, the AP will not assign any print journalists to cover Fox's events, which include those by the affiliated FX cable network. [AP]
FOX has clearly been spending too much time with the current administration. Bad habits are rubbing off.
