MORE GANNON The Times finally climbs aboard. (Even
Drudge has broken his silence.)

Meanwhile, the folks over at DailyKos remind us that Scott McClellan needs to come up with a better story:

In a press briefing on Feb. 10th, White House Press Secretary McClellan claimed that Guckert was granted White House access because he "showed that he was representing a news organization that published regularly." (emphasis added).

However, Talon News came into existence on March 29, 2003. It was granted White House Press Corps access just four days (approx. 96 hours) later. During that four-day time period, Talon News published a total of nine "stories."
