follow up to the last post
I just called the white house press office. they wouldn't talk to me without talking to my editor first, and since I was trying to work this story freelance it was no go. but they have someone commenting on it. someone with an editor, make it happen:
white house press office: 202 456 2673.
and the fact that they're "commenting," not "denying," makes me think there's something to this. but who knows...
