DISSING THE YOUTH VOTE....Via Jack O'Toole, student journalists in Iowa are unhappy with the president:

The Iowa State Daily; the Daily Iowan, the student newspaper at the University of Iowa; and the DMACC Chronicle, the student newspaper of the Ankeny campus of Des Moines Area Community College, were all left off the approved list to cover the presidential visit.

....Mike Allsup, reporter for the Chronicle...said he was later contacted by the White House press office and told the president didn't want students covering the event in Des Moines.

Why do you suppose the White House objects to student newspapers covering a presidential visit?
