Breitbart News was stymied once again on Tuesday in its efforts to secure press credentials on Capitol Hill.
The standing committee of correspondents of the U.S. Senate Daily Press Gallery, a panel of journalists that determines which news organizations should receive congressional press passes, voted to table Breitbart's bid for permanent passes and to discontinue the right-wing outlet's temporary credentials without an extension.
Breitbart's temporary credentials expire on May 31.
Laura Lytle, the director of the Senate Press Gallery, said that Breitbart's application was tabled until the outlet "can sufficiently demonstrate that they meet the requirements of Rule 4 of the Congressional rules governing the Gallery."
One part of that rule says, "Applicants' publications must be editorially independent of any institution, foundation or interest group that lobbies the federal government, or that is not principally a general news organization."
Well clearly Breitbart does not meet those criteria.
They are a propaganda outlet for Donald Trump.
However since Steve Bannon is still skulking around the White House somewhere there still exists the possibility that Breitbart will eventually get those credentials.
And on that day it will signify yet another stake through the heart of American journalism.
