I always liked the television show called West Wing. Allison Janney was the Press Secretary. Best episode, in my opinion, was when the Deputy Chief of Staff - Rob Lowe - spent a night with a prostitute and accidentally switched cell phones with her. The prostitute kept getting all the secure, confidential calls and Rob Lowe kept getting her calls from "johns" wanting services.
With this kind of conditioning, it's no wonder so many voters wouldn't be able to name the 3 branches of federal government, or which party holds the majority in the Senate or House.

The Whitehouse Says

About "The Whitehouse Says"
"The Whitehouse Says".com make news releases from the Whitehosue easy to find and easy to scan through quickly. It does this in order to help you, keep your finger on the pulse of what the Whitehouse is saying it's up to. Without having to try to hard, and without having to rely on journalists telling you what matters.

The idea is based on the UK's Downing Street Says.


Much of the news and information covered by The Whitehouse Says is "out there" and being discussed. But it is normally discussed without any reference to the original announcement, the result being that the media gets to say what a Whitehouse announcement really 'means'.

It's based on the UK website The Government Says.com.

And in the words of The Observer newspaper in the UK TheGovernmentSays.com is "Great for sifting through the rubble on days when bad news is likely to be buried".
