Journo’s Cell Phone Causes Stir

TIPS FROM THE POOL, INTO THE DEEP END


TWT White House Pool Reporter David Boyer wrote about a journalist’s disruptive cell phone this weekend at a NATO Summit in Chicago. While listening to remarks from NATO Sec. General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and President Obama, a journalist’s cell phone rang and rang and rang. Boyer told FishbowlDC that he asked around after the spray but no one knew who the offending journo was.

“In early afternoon, Mr. Obama and NATO Secretary General gave welcoming remarks at the top of their bilateral meeting at the convention center. They stood in a small room, the same one where Mr. Obama met with Hamid Karzai. The White House has already sent out the transcript of this three-minute spray, so your pooler won’t try to reinvent the wheel. But during Mr. Rasmussen’s comments, a journo’s cell phone began ringing for such a long time that Mr. Obama gave a sideways glance as if trying to locate the source.”
