Oprah’s Large and in Charge

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END


WSJ’s White House Pooler Laura Meckler is the lucky scribe who gets to be at the Oprah show today with POTUS and FLOTUS. But she won’t be able to report on much because she’s not allowed since most of the material has been embargoed. The Oprah show will release one clip today and two tomorrow.

For anyone who needs explanation, the show has embargoed all material from the taping until it airs, with exception of what the show chooses to release. The White House has explained their enforcement of this policy by explaining that if/when one of us gets a potus interview, the WH will not let the pool report on that interview ahead of time either. (Complaints should be directed to the White House and/or Oprah Winfrey.)
