White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry jokingly put a bag over his head at the beginning of the briefing, claiming to be an anonymous source. Commenting on the tradition of press secretaries speaking off the record, he said the bag was “the senior White House official who is so helpful to so many of you all the time.” He talked with reporters about a meeting the next day between President Bill Clinton and automobile company executives on global climate change. He answered questions from the press on possible legislation on teen smoking, immigration and other topics. close
