Will the Press be Banned from Obama’s Swearing In Ceremony?

This is just straight up creepy.  When even the compliant press turn against you there is clearly something very rotten in Denmark.  From Politico:

The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the president’s official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.

Because inauguration day falls on a Sunday in 2013, Chief Justice John Roberts will officially administer the official oath of office in a private ceremony that day. The public inauguration on the Capitol Building’s West Front — at which Roberts will administer a second, symbolic oath of office— will take place the next day.
