“Morning, guys. How’s everyone?”
With that, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs launched the first press gaggle of the Obama presidency to be held in Mr. Gibbs’ private office. Only a select few reporters were invited – well, more like 50, per Gibbs deputy Bill Burton, who sent out the emails early Friday. About 20 showed up for the 9:45 a.m. session. No TV cameras.

Forget Truth to Power: now that Obama is president, it's Donuts to Power. White House press secretary Gibbs recently held an invitation-only briefing in his private office and McClatchy brought the donuts.
Readers of this blog might remember Margaret Talev is Obama's occasional shopping pal.
