From the White House, a Delay in Publishing Executive Orders
By Michael D. Shear
President Obama may have earned the title of great communicator during his campaign, but there have been a few glitches since he got into office.
Today, Politico reported that the Obama administration had issued several minor executive orders and a taken a few other official actions without notifying the press or posting them on the White House website.
The orders were mostly uninteresting affairs -- one to add a person to the 25-person Domestic Policy Council and another to expand the National Economic Council. A third canceled some Bush-era regulation reviews.
But the idea that executive actions could be taken without notifying the press is a big deal to the reporters who cover the White House.
The explanation: White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton says there was a "short delay" in getting the executive orders and other documents up n their website. He says the delay has now been addressed.
