Press agencies refuse to distribute Obama photos

Posted by Bhamini .N on January 26, 2009 at 9:29 AM
One of the things that President Barack Obama promised during his campaign is change. And he seems to be keeping his promise. 

Breaking a long-standing tradition, the White House refused to allow photographers to take pictures of the new President in the Oval office, on his first day. A result of which, three press agencies, namely, The Associated Press, Reuters and Agence France-Presse refused to distribute photographs that were provided by the White House. 

Michael Oreskes, managing editor for U.S news at AP, said that they hope to negotiate an amicable solution, after emails and phone messages were not replied to by Obama's representatives. 
Ed: End to agencies. Why are they needed?
