Pelosi Bars C-SPAN Cameras

December 23, 2006

Hi Brit,

So much for Pelosi’s pledge to run the most open Congress in history, like that’s a surprise.  One would think that she’d make at least a token effort.  However, Pelosi says no to C-SPAN request on floor proceedings.  As you may not get C-SPAN, which is television coverage of the House of Representatives, over there, you wouldn’t know that the cameras only show the person speaking.  They’re not allowed to pan across the room to show the reactions of people as they listen to the debate.  C-SPAN, in the interest of giving complete coverage, requested just that of the new Speaker, Nanny Pelosi, who refused. 

So what are they hiding?  Where is the open Congress, Pelsoi?
