Mission Management, (my partner) pointed out that I was somewhat uncharitable to the press gallery in my last post. Fair enough. My only excuse is I was in a hurry to finish.
I want to be clear that there are many, many dedicated, talented professionals in the press pack with a far, far deeper appreciation if the events than I, and they have my respect.
I do find the relationship between the briefing reps and the journalists occasionally entertaining, so there might be a few more jokes, but please rest assured they are underwritten with a great deal of respect.
There. More news & pics coming…
