Today 1:56 AM Media Scrambles To Cover News

HuffPost's Michael Calderone reports:

NEW YORK – White House reporters sharing a laugh with President Obama on Saturday found themselves racing online and soberly appearing on camera 24 hours later to cover an East Room statement that will go down in history: Osama bin Laden is dead.

Obama addressed the American people around 11:35 p.m., almost two hours after the White House sent reporters scrambling with word of a surprise announcement that left many scratching their heads about what could be so pressing that it couldn’t wait until Monday morning.

BNA reporter Cheryl Bolen, assigned Sunday to file “pool reports” for the press corps, informed her colleagues at 9:45 p.m. that “the president will make a statement as early as 10:30 p.m.” Meanwhile, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer notified the world via Twitter that Obama would be making a major announcement, but provided no details of what was to come.
