Looking for "first string" reporters in Tampa? You won't find any, says Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), quoted in a Politico story: 

ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. -- California Rep. Darrell Issa took a sharp swipe at the media covering the Republican National Convention, dubbing them the "second string."

"I was downtown earlier today, where the second string of most of the networks are covering, as we speak, what we're doing, while the first string is seeing if there's another Katrina."
