White House Goof

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

The White House press office made an error today and sent out an email announcing that Robert Gibbs would be leading today’s briefing. They wrote:

Updated Briefing Schedule

1:00PM   Briefing by Press Secretary Robert Gibbs

They didn’t mean to slight the new spokesman, Jay Carney. Five minutes later they sent out a corrected e-mail.

UPDATE: This just in from a FishbowlDC tipster: “Another and bigger White House goof: White House photographers were in the East Room for an arts event and missed the brief appearance by POTUS in the briefing room. This includes POOL photographers who weren’t given a heads up. Not good.”
