and he isn't even taking responsibility for it. The article is very interesting as I have been following this story from the beginning. It all started when a Fox news reporter questioned the White House Press Secretary last week on American citizens getting White House email that they did not ask for or sign up for.
Back and forth ensued and finally, this is what the White House states, ""We are implementing measures to make subscribing to e-mails clearer, including preventing advocacy organizations from signing people up to our lists without their permission when they deliver petition signatures and other messages on individuals' behalf,".
So basically they are blaming advocacy groups for putting people on the White House list. The President probably hasn't heard the term "opt-in confirmation" before, but Fat Atom sure could help them.
