I talked this week to Joe Keenan, who runs the Senate Press Gallery, to ask him whether the reconfigured Scotusblog might qualify. Quite possibly, he answered. “We’d look at them all over again,” he said, noting that the gallery has changed substantially since my own brief stint covering Congress in the mid-1980’s. “We have all kinds of different permutations now,” Mr. Keenan said, adding that the 24-hour news cycle has brought more journalists to Congress than ever before. The daily press gallery now accredits 1,800 reporters representing some 400 organizations, including a number of online-only publications.
