Submission + - Bloggers Now Eligible For Press Passes In NYC (mediapost.com)

RobotRunAmok writes: Wendy Davis, in Online Media Daily, is reporting that the New York City Police Department announced Tuesday that bloggers and others who publish on the Web will now be eligible for press credentials. The move comes as a result of a lawsuit filed in 2008 by three Web journalists who were denied press passes. In New York, journalists with press passes are typically allowed to cross police barricades at public events.
