A limited number of news media who represent a larger number of news media organizations for purposes of news gathering and sharing of material during a specified activity.

The Department of Defense National Media Pool is available for coverage of the earliest stages of a contingency. Additionally, the combatant commanders may also find it necessary to form limited local pools to report on specific missions. See also news media representative; public affairs.
