From Fox News: White House Corrects Conference Call Number After Directing Reporters to Sex Line. The story:
Journalists seeking to talk a little foreign policy with high-profile Obama administration officials live from the G20 meetings in London this week were solicited for phone sex instead after ringing up the toll-free number given by the White House.
In a press release, the White House accidentally listed a sex line number for journalists seeking an “on-the-record briefing call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Jim Jones to discuss the NATO summit.”
But after dialing, a soft-voiced female recording that was clearly not Clinton asked for a credit card number if you “feel like getting nasty.”
After several efforts to make sure that the phone number was correctly dialed, a call to the White House resulted in a corrected press release. “If you are having trouble dialing into the call, please try this number as an alternative,” and listed the international line included for reporters abroad to dial.
LOL! I bet the looks on the faces of those who called the number thinking they were going to get Clinton and Jones were priceless. The callers were probably all frantically looking around for their reset button.
On the other hand, had this been a conference call number that was supposed to be a briefing with the President himself, it wouldn’t have been out of the realm of possiblity for the reporters calling in to be close to orgasmic. Don’t forget – it’s happened before …
