Washington, DC - During the February 10 White House briefing, Press Secretary Scott McClellan stated that Jeff Gannon, "...like anyone else, showed that he was representing a news organization that published regularly" in order to receive his day pass to press briefings.  It has been confirmed that Jeff Gannon was in the White House briefing room, actively participating in these briefings, as early as February 28, 2003 a full month before Talon News even existed.

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (NY-28), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Rules, who has lead the call for answers in this matter, today called on the White House to explain their relationship with the discredited "reporter" once and for all.

"It has been a week since I wrote President Bush seeking answers in this matter.  I have not yet received a reply.  With each new revelation it becomes more and more clear that the relationship between the White House and Jeff Gannon was anything but typical," said Slaughter.  "It is time for this Administration to stop the stonewalling and come clean with the American people," she added.

Commentary:
The standards used by the White House have got to be the most lax in US history. They manufactured intelligence to take us to war, they lied in the State of the Union, they lied about the number of stem cells available for research, they lied about a threat to AF1 and they lied about a threat to our national security. We should expect them to tell us the truth about a fake reporter who's a gay prostitute.
