(New York Times) –Some days, White House “pool duty” can be more interesting than others, even when you don’t get to see POTUS. That’s pool-speak for President of the United States, and first a primer: Wherever a president goes, a “pool” of roughly a dozen reporters and photographers follows, though often not close enough to see him. A newspaper reporter writes “pool reports”– often mundane accounts of POTUS sightings, what he’s wearing (gym, golf or business clothes?) and movements of his motorcade (including the far-in-the-back media vans). Those reports then go out to many others by e-mail.
