Romney Campaign Bars Reporters From Jerusalem Fund-Raiser

Source: CNN

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign will not allow reporters to cover the candidate’s Monday fund-raiser in Jerusalem, a campaign aide said Saturday.

That decision is a change in practice from an agreement the campaign and media outlets, including CNN, reached with the campaign last spring.

Romney press aide Rick Gorka told reporters following Romney on his international trip that the fund-raiser was closed press, but offered no explanation as to why. Romney touched down Saturday in Israel and will head later to Poland.

A rotating small number of reporters attend the candidate’s fund-raisers held in public places – such as Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, the site of Monday’s event – and share their reporting with other outlets, but reporters are not allowed into Romney’s fund-raisers in private homes.
