Reporters Zone in on Booze Habits

With the immediacy of social media reporting comes details that might later seem creative or quirky in an actual story. But everything is fair game when observation prowess is at stake among Capitol Hill reporters who don’t miss a beat. And the first to tweet it, what, wins a prize?

Such was the reporting scene Monday as the day was essentially being live blogged by every political reporter in town and President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden dined at the Capitol. Before the lunch even began, we’d already seen the gorgeous place settings on Twitter. Soon enough, we’d learned Republicans had given the President and Vice President Lenox crystal vases.

Shortly thereafter, thanks to Politico‘s Manu Raju, we learned about the President and Vice President’s drinking habits.
