The group stressed the need for consistent, meaningful access to the president for photographers and the full White House press corps.

 

Group members were encouraged by Carney's recognition that independent press access to the president is essential to democracy, as well as his willingness to address the group's concerns by agreeing to engage in an ongoing dialogue with media representatives, led by the WHCA.
