Friday, July 27, 2012

Transcript

Some 29,000 reporters and their staffs have descended on London for the Olympic Games, but according to the International Olympic Committee, about one quarter of them are not accredited to actually cover the games.  These are left to report on any number of local stories, which can be a chilling prospect for civic leaders. Christopher Werth reports on the attempt by Olympic host cities to try to shape the coverage produced by the staggering number of unaccredited journalists.
