Too Many Steves at the White House

FishbowlDC has a post up about last night’s Obama presser mix-up involving two reporters named Steve. The president called on “Steve Koff, the Cleveland Plain Dealer,” but it wasn’t Steve Koff that stood up and asked the question. Instead, it was McClatchy’s Steve Thomma who jumped the gun. Thomma explained: “I just heard him wrong. I heard him say Steve, then what sounded roughly like my last name and wrongly assumed it was me. I immediately turned to grab the microphone from the young aide who was kneeling right next to me and didn’t hear the president add, ‘…of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.’ ”
