"Sam Stein, Huffinton Post, where's Sam?"

President Barak Obama legitimized the Huffington Post at his February 9th press conference by taking a question from one of their reporters. Obama started the press conference with a question from veteran reporter, Helen Thomas, but "Almost all of the questions came from reporters under 40 with few old standbys in attendance."
