Rank #10: White House Access: WH Correspondent’s Association President Jeff Mason

Podcast cover
Read more

Reuters’ White House correspondent Jeff Mason serves double duty. In addition to covering President Trump, Jeff is the current White House Correspondents Association President. This episode of our podcast was recorded just after President Trump’s first 100 days in office when Jeff landed a key interview with the President in which he discussed the rigors of his job. It also came just after President Trump and his staff broke with tradition and declined an invitation to attend the White House Correspondents Association annual dinner. Presidential access is always a key issue for the reporters who cover the White House. This discussion with Jeff was recorded at a time when access was better than it currently is. But if we have learned one thing about the Trump White House, it’s that access is constantly changing. Download transcript here.
