Do Not Answer The Phone At A White House Press Conference

Posted May 18, 2009

Earlier this week at the White House press briefing, several cellphones began to rang. The first phone belonged to John Gizzi and press secretary Robert Gibbs confiscated it. And then CBS’ Bill Plante’s phone rang and he stepped out of the room to take the call. Wow, these press guys are acting like they are high school kids again where Gibbs is the metaphorical teacher telling the kids to stop using their phones during class.
