VICE News (8/31/18)
In Los Angeles, celebrities are constantly pursued by camera-wielding photographers snapping photos and yelling questions. Things are a bit more tame in Washington, D.C. when it comes to the political celebrities who regularly walk the streets of the district. High level Cabinet officials and politicians are mostly left alone when they are out in public. While the corridors of the U.S. Capitol can be a media gauntlet, outside of predetermined media availabilities high-powered officials can usually go about their business without worrying too much. So VICE News decided to make things slightly more uncomfortable for the people who make some of the country’s most important decisions by taking the LA-based paparazzi and bringing them to Washington.
The photographers found out that while you can find these people in D.C., it’s still hard to get them to answer any questions.
