"a qualified reporter from a recogizably legitimate outlet"

What, pray tell, makes a reporter qualified?

Is there a qualifying examination?

And how would someone recognize a legitimate outfit?

By sight? Or is it intuition?

Standards, by implications, might disqualify many WH reporters. Be careful what you wish for.

It's rather amusing that some, who generally demand greater transparency, would want to limit access to WH press conferences with some sort of closed shop--continuing the trend of old media to its demise.
