written in large letters which they MUST wear while covering the
I am sure that the obviousness of their status is up for interpretation,

that they are talking to a member of the media, rather than just another
attendee. Having "MEDIA" in big red flashing letters would help, but it
would also probably be annoying and not feasible.
