Oakland – Salesforce follows me, Zennie Abraham, of Zennie62Media and Zennie62 on YouTube, but will not grant a press credential to cover Dreamforce. Dreamforce is their giant, 171,000 person-strong event.

Now, this blogger has learned that KPOO 89.5 FM San Francisco has experienced similar problems with Salesforce and Dreamforce.

The Dreamforce Press Credential Team doesn’t give a real reason, just one that invites more questions.


Dreamforce Press Criteria:

Must write for a reputable third-party publication that meets our criteria.

Must be an editorial contact (no ad/sales representatives, business development contacts, etc.)

Freelance writers or photographers must provide proof of assignment from a publication to cover the news at Dreamforce.

This is what I wrote back:


This is Zennie Abraham. Someone on your Dreamforce Press Registration Team made a giant error and rejected my request for a blogger pass. They sent this set of reasons, which I will answer. But I must also add that you all follow me on Twitter. Again, you all follow me on Twitter. So, from that standpoint, I assumed this would be easy. My apologies for the assumption, now my answers:

Must write for a reputable third-party publication that meets our criteria.
ANSWER: I run Zennie62Media, a 98-blog network, and started the first blog in Oakland, ever, Oakland Focus, and now run Oakland’s only daily active blog Oakland News Now. I’m on the White House Press List to this day, since President Obama put me there.
Must be an editorial contact (no ad/sales representatives, business development contacts, etc.)
ANSWER: I am CEO of Zennie62Media – I am the editorial contact and I do have other vloggers. See
Freelance writers or photographers must provide proof of assignment from a publication to cover the news at Dreamforce.
ANSWER: See above.

On top of that, I have a technologically advanced, smartphone-based media system. I can dominate a news cycle keyword in minutes, from anywhere in the world.

I live in Oakland, but I’ve been in Georgia helping my 85 year old Mom. I’m back for the week, hence the late request.

So, then my friend Harrison Chestang of KPOO 89.5 PM African American radio in San Francisco sent this to me:


So you got rejected for a Dreamforce credential too? I didn’t even bother applying this year because of their fuck you attitude toward me when I applied last year similar to what you experienced. You aren’t the only one.

And we both cover CES Las Vegas, too.


President Obama should know that while he’s inside Dreamforce and being feted as the first black POTUS, (and the best one we’ve had) African American media are being blocked from covering him. Of course, Dreamforce would not be stupid enough to put it that way, so they invent crap reasons.

Stay tuned.
