White House Press Office Dials Up an Odd Briefing

leave a comment »

The White House press office gave reporters a little more than what they were expecting yesterday when it distributed a phone number that was meant to be a conference call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Jim Jones to discuss the NATO summit.

The number was a porn line.

Reporters were greeted with a woman’s voice that was most definitely not the secretary of state. The Washington Post has the audio.

This is not the first misstep for the new press office, but unlike some of the others, this seems to fall under the “oops, my bad” category.
