Ebony Pool Reporter Gets Into Chinese Coverage


Today’s White House Pooler Kevin Chappell of Ebony Magazine gets creative and consults a fortune cookie site to add to the coverage of Chinese President Hu’s visit. He tells FishbowlDC the fortune is absolutely “real.” He suggests eating Chinese fare as you read his coverage.
