A journalists’ group lodged a complaint Tuesday against the Obama White House, which bills itself as the most transparent in history, for shutting out some members of the press from a meeting between President Obama and the surviving Apollo 11 astronauts.

CBS News reporter Major Garrett, representing the White House Correspondents’ Association, informed White House press secretary Josh Earnest of the formal complaint at the daily press briefing. Mr. Garrett said the decision to allow only still photographers to record the meeting as a photo-op “limits television coverage” of a newsworthy event.
