This was a direct email response from CCI to the blog, so maybe they only asked about not due outlets? I would wait to see what the CCI official email sent out to all key contacts says before worrying. Hopefully, they offer more clarification.

Personally I think it would be weird to not extend for ALL outlets regardless of whether they just reverified or were not due.
But Pros who were set to have to reverify for 2021 will still need to verify I think.  So press outlets due to reverify would likely still have to reverify.

Also, just spitballing, it seems feasible there won't be enough badges returned/refunded to necessitate a badge-selling that extra refunded badges they receive would go to press & pro badges maybe (assuming there are too few to have a sale, and too many to auction off for charity/CCI Museum)

No. Pros due to verify in 2021 are extended to 2022. The email was clear.

I am not sure what the comparative benefits of being press will be this time. I guess there may be interviews that can be done online, maybe some press only events?

Well to confirm what I was wondering earlier, I believe the usual press emails will come in this year. So the usual preview materials, interview opportunities, maybe press only online events.

Im definitely starting to get press releases from registering for at home press but time will tell if there any interview opportunities (at least for smaller outlets like mine).

I didn't end up able to make much use of the press status. There was some interesting press releases but with regard to the one event I was interested, I found out too late and missed it  :(
