Admit one

March 1978
Columbia Journalism Review;Mar/Apr1978, Vol. 16 Issue 6, p25
The article reports that Robert Sherrill, a Washington correspondent, was judged by a federal appeals court in the U.S. on December 15, 1977, to have been wrongfully excluded. Banned by the Secret Service from the White House in 1966 because he had criticized a Florida governor's press secretary. However tardily, the court confirmed that "a bonafide Washington correspondent"--Sherrill was that for "The Nation" newspaper--had a constitutional right to a press pass and could be kept out only if the Secret Service gave a concrete reason and permitted a response. In the Sherrill case, he had not learned of the reason for the denial for six years. The Nation observed: "A principle of decent and open public behavior has been vindicated by the court."
