I just happened on an article about Bush's recent visit to North Dakota.
Some Barred From Bush's North Dakota Speech
Friday, February 4, 2005; Page A08
Not everyone was welcome, apparently, at President Bush's speech in
North Dakota yesterday.
The Fargo Forum reported that a city commissioner, a liberal radio
producer, a deputy Democratic campaign manager and a number of
university professors were among more than 40 area residents who were
barred from attending the Bush event. Their names were on a list
supplied to workers at two ticket distribution sites.
The "Bush blacklist" is "frightening," Tom Athans, chief executive of
Democracy Radio, said after learning that a producer for the liberal
"Ed Schultz Show" was among those barred. "To blacklist a local
citizen because he produces a radio program at odds with the political
agenda of the White House is dangerous for democracy."
City Commissioner Linda Coates, whose husband was also on the list,
told the newspaper that the list "is very revealing as to what this
administration is all about."
The White House said the list may have come from volunteers; it did
not come from the White House.
