White House Reporters Stuck With $25,000 Charges After Biden Trip Canceled

From a Washington Post story by Paul Farhi headlined “White House reporters stuck with $25,000 charges after Biden trip canceled”:

Every traveler dreads a sudden flight cancellation. But few travelers have been stuck with the kind of headache that White House reporters were left with this week.

In anticipation of covering President Biden’s trip to Japan and Australia, news organizations shelled out big bucks to charter a plane to carry journalists from Hiroshima to Sydney. But then Biden decided to skip the Australian leg of his trip to return to Washington for continuing negotiations with congressional Republicans over a debt ceiling increase.
