Sample of Identification card.......
REAL NEWS - REAL PEOPLE - REAL ISSUES!
You may order the press ID card and never write an article or submit a video tape. There are no writing requirements for freelance field reporters. We would like to see your stories, but again, it is not required.
One of the best things about having a press pass is that you are treated like
a real human being again!
How would you like to have a pass you could flash in a restaurant, hotel, or at an important event and suddenly you´re treated like a VIP? You're ushered to the best table, you're given the best room, you're upgraded to first class... You've seen this happen... Perhaps it's happened to you once or twice. Remember how good it felt to receive that special treatment, to get that good deal... OK, what if you could obtain that treatment all the time?...
All you need is a PRESS PASS!!
This very impressive Press Pass is issued by RCG-TV. The freelance holder of an RCG-TV Press Pass is authorized to investigate and report on all newsworthy events, incidents and matters. This Press Pass may also be used for identification purposes. Should it ever become necessary, the phone number of the RCG-TV News office is imprinted on the reverse side for any interested party to verify your credentials. The Editor-in-Chief signs the Press Pass.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press."
Think of the possibilities. As an official Press Correspondent, you will be able to attend many newsworthy events and report on them. If you have ever dreamed of being an Official Press Correspondent, here is your chance!
With a Press Pass you never have to pay to enter an exhibition, concert or trade fair worldwide. Did you know that in Press Office lounges at trade fairs and exhibitions, they provide free refreshments and often the use of telephones and faxes to members of the press? No car parking fees or entry lines! You are a VIP!
You get free entry to concerts and sporting events. Hotels and resorts often provide you with free accommodations. A genuine Press Pass will open many doors and provide many advantages to you as a traveler or even at home.
Have you ever been to a function and found yourself in a long slow-moving line waiting to pay for your ticket? While waiting you notice a few other people who look just like you - but not dressed as well - are ushered in through a VIP entrance. No waiting and no entrance fee!
