A press pass grants some type of special privilege to journalists. Some cards have recognized legal status; others merely indicate that the bearer is a practicing journalist. The nature of the benefits is determined by the type of issuing agency, of which there are three major categories: news organizations, law-enforcement agencies, and event organizers. Each type of card grants different authorizations, thus it is often necessary or desirable for reporters to hold multiple press passes simultaneously. (via Freebase)
