Gannon worked the White House briefing room before there was a Talon News

Man, I go out to dinner and come back and this sh*t blows up…

The rent boy was sitting there asking questions in the press room on Feb 28 2003, not employed by any news organization. This screen shot is from CSPAN (“Jeff” chimes in at 31:45).

How, do you ask, did this hooker get credentials to be there? Patron of Lone Star gay bars and White House Spokesman Scott McClellan said at the Feb 10 press gaggle: ‘He, like anyone else, showed that he was representing a news organization that published regularly, and so he was cleared two years ago to receive daily passes, just like many others are.’

Oops. Must have been a memory slip, Scotty. ‘Talon News’ did not exist until Mar 29 2003. He was in the briefing above on Feb 28 2003. Who gave him clearance and why?

…and the transcript of the briefing, from the White House web site.

This is smelling funkier than a overflowing hog lagoon.
