    You're refusing to pay attention.

    Press is not prohibited from the area.  Press, and everyone else who doesn't get clearance, are prohibited from flying aircraft in the area below 1000'. As far as I know you are welcome to wander in to the area on foot and to fly your aircraft at 1001' anywhere you like.

    Seriously, I refuse to try to explain things or attempt to have a rational discussion about the current situation with people like yourself who completely reject the reality of the situation and are refusing to pay attention.

      so you are fed up with them, not me:

      "This also means press is prohibited from the area, though Lunsford told Dow Jones that the FAA "is in the process of amending the restriction to allow news media aircraft into the area.""

      That is what I copied from the article, and you are the one mistakenly taking their quote out of context to mean all the area, and not the no fly zone area, which is how the FAA person described it as well.

        You're going to run with this ignorance?

        So now the FAA can restrict media from the ground as well? You do realize that FAA is the Federal Aviation Administration, right? They don't have any ability to limit people on the ground. You also refuse to acknowledge that this is a limitation on aircraft 1000'AGL and below.

        You apparently are too dense to recognize this isn't a no-fly zone, it's simply restricted access 1000' and below. I'm done with you and your conspiracies, fantasies and frankly outright delusional thinking and voluntary ignorance. You refuse to understand and that makes you just as dangerous and irresponsible as any oil executive trying to squeeze out another dollar by raping the land and lying to the people.  Good day.

          but then you keep doing it, and you keep arguing with yourself because I never said anything about it being on the ground, nor did the FAA person from the article I quoted.

          When the FAA person stated, ""This also means press is prohibited from the area," I didn't say they meant the ground, nor is that their implication. It is yours alone.

            to "this area", they're talking the area IN THE AIR LESS THAN 1000 FEET.

            This kind of absolutely silly - no, make that stupid - chicken little type crap is the weakest part of the progressive movement.  Too many people are similar to the redstaters, and won't let go of their conspiracy or plutocracy theories even when the facts slap them in the face.  How ridiculous a  few of you are being.  And solely because you couldn't accept sensible explanations in the beginning, but just kept digging your hole deeper and deeper and now when faced with how silly you've been, can not face admitting it.
