The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the presidents official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.
Mindful of the historic nature of this occasion, we expect the White House will continue the long tradition of opening the Presidents official swearing-in to full press access, and we as an organization are looking forward to working with the administration to make that happen, Ed Henry, the Fox News correspondent and president of the White House Correspondents Association, said in a statement.

Red letter DRUDGE Headline: PRESS TURNS: Demands Obama Open 'Private' Official Inauguration
How Stalin-esque that we have a private swearing in.
Who is his guest of honor? Satan or the Saudi Prince?
Why would The Won feel the need to exclude the press?
Probably swearing in on the Koran like he did the first time around.
Bring your own Koran!
They just don’t want the press to see them
using a Koran to swear on.
Could it be that Hussein doesn’t want everyone to know that he’s going to swear on the Koran?
Certain press will be there. Count on it.
However, he should not be sworn in this way. He did a do over the last time and probably swore on the Koran. We should NOT ALLOW this. I don’t believe he will be sworn in.
It has to be private because HE WON’T SWEAR ON A BIBLE!
We had this song & dance first time around with a “botched” ceremony and no one caught on. What does it take for these imbeciles to see who this clown is?
Look in my eyes and see if you see someone who cares.
Since I don’t like to see his ugly mug or hear his awful voice
on TV...works for me!!
This is just a stunt to keep FOX News out of the event.
Oh, he’ll have an emperor has no clothes parade so Moochh can showus her arms and he can smile and wave. KAK!
Just don’t make an appt for the doc that day or you’ll get stuck in a waiting room with a large screen tv that has no controls and with a fawning blind clerical crew, .ike I did last time around.
THE YELLOW!! Can’t lose the image of that sleeveless woman
Thanks for the warning! Ugh! I could NOT stand the sight of the Wookie all dressed up and ready to make grown people gag!
He’ll swear on the koran in private and on Moby Dick for the cameras.
Do you have a source for that? I have heard it isn’t true.
Don’t want to get the press all ‘wee-weed’ up, or they might start looking into this fraudulent doofus.
