However, using the pass could sometimes be abused and the holder thinks he/she has a privilege that should be granted. Sometimes, using a pass could be taken advantage of the holder by stretching the restrictions a bit. In other words, pass holders could sometimes linger around even after the event covered by the pass is over. Nonetheless, press people often police their ranks and at times, responsible press people shun their colleagues who abuse such right.
When News Personality (NP) was assigned to cover a major event at a huge venue, NP came prepared and as usual, took time to observe and note incidents that could be incorporated to her feed. NP is a celebrity in her own right, and thanks to her media exposure, her face is familiar to the public. Therefore, when NP found herself in a very tempting opportunity, she took advantage of the situation.
After she did her duty, NP stayed a bit longer at the venue and a few minutes before the event started, she saw vacant seats in the most expensive section of the area. She made her way and sat on one of the chairs. The event was about to start in a few minutes when the owners of the seats arrived. The venue was packed and each seat corresponded to a value that could be already an arm and a leg for the ordinary fan. Hence, every seat is quite valuable.
The ticket holders then told NP that those were their seats. Instead of standing up and apologizing, NP gave them a blank stare and raised an eyebrow. Her frown indicated that she seemed to have no intention of leaving. To avoid confrontation, one of the ticket holders called an usher to ask NP to leave. The moment NP saw the usher approaching, she left and moved away. Had she given the usher a hard time, NP would definitely have made headlines. Such a negative incident might reflect on her network that prides itself of leadership.
