National Rifle Association Denies Guardian US Entry To Annual Convention
Huffington Post - 9 months
The National Rifle Association denied press credentials to the Guardian US to cover its annual convention in Louisville, Kentucky, apparently over a restriction on foreign media outlets.  Lois Beckett, a Guardian US senior reporter covering gun policy and politics, tweeted Friday that she was denied access to the event held at the Kentucky Exposition Center. She's instead reported from outside the gathering, for instance writing on NRA members skeptical about presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, who addressed the crowd Friday afternoon in Freedom Hall. The NRA's official news feed has even promoted her coverage. Guardian US Head of News David Taylor said the NRA declined their credential request on the grounds that the organization is a foreign media outlet, a characterization he rejected.  An NRA spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.  The Guardian, a nearly 200-year-old British newspaper and global news site, launched Guardian US in 2011 as a digita ...

Everything from tributes to David Bowie and Alan Rickman to smart gun technology and a Kindle for the blind — it’s all here.

The artist released his new album, Blackstar, just two days before his death, and though it had been reported he would no longer tour, it was not publicly stated the halt was due to health issues. Bowie battled the cancer that would take his life in relative silence for a reported 18 months.
