ABC News Denied Access to Senatorial Spin Class?

A tweet just now from ABC News’s Jake Tapper:

Congress denied ABC News’ request to film the House/Senate gyms that YOUR tax dollars pay for. Interesting.

No Pilates with Pelosi. No bicep-curls with Boehner.

UPDATE: Just to clarify, I’m poking fun at the folks hiding their treadmills from the public, not the news organization wanting access to them. Really. Reporters should make a habit of Twittering about (or otherwise communicating) access/transparency issues. Right, Clint?
