Pooler Notes Old and New Media

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END

McClatchy’s White House reporter Steve Thomma brings us this Pool Report this afternoon involving old and new media. He’s got most of the tools covered.

President Obama chatted briefly in the Diplomatic Receiving Room before taking questions via youtube. He talked with youtube moderator Steve Grove about his snow-lengthened commute Wednesday evening from Andrews to the White House and joked about the poolers with pens and notebooks amid the laptops and cameras. “You got all the old media people here,” he said. Questions came from videos shown on a flat panel TV beside Obama’s chair. The session was streamed live on youtube and whitehouse.gov.
