As we told you before, the White House is being very strict about forbidding photos of the new White House briefing room (until they decide to allow them). Steve Scully is trying to get the White House to loosen up a bit, but fat chance: WH Press’ Josh Deckard sent out this email this morning:

Press are NOT allowed to photograph the brief room during this transition-they aren’t even supposed to be in there. Press took pictures this morning and got very rude w/ the workers when they asked them to stop. Please make sure those pictures don’t run.
If anyone breaks this rule from here on out they will lose their pass.
