Any journalist who snaps Sepia Instagrams of their brunch at the Sochi Olympics will promptly lose their accreditation for the games. “Journalists using mobile phones to film athletes or spectators will be considered a serious violation and will result in cancellation of accreditation,” reported Vasily Konov, head of the Russian state-run R-Sports news outlet.
So how is the Chicago Sun-Times going to cover the winter Olympics?
There is an official PRESS ACCREDITATION PROCEDURE for the XXII OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES SOCHI. At a cost of Bn$51 they would be foolish not to have tight controls on the media. I'm sure the 2800 photographers at the games would be grateful for the protection of their rights.Cheers,
