He said that the purpose was to open up the briefings to a diverse group of journalists from around the country who may not have the convenience or funding to travel to Washington. Spicer did not say how the White House would select those journalists from outside D.C. nor how they would qualify. He suggested in past public comments, however, that news outlets and bloggers outside of mainstream news operations would be given more access to the White House.
