      I used the archive machine to check back to 2002 on this site; McClellan is nowhere in sight but Ari is.   He has his own video.  This probably casts further doubt that Scotty's was in 2002.

      No more Mr. Nice Democrat

        And there's another "tour" video there. Looks like the McClellan video is newer, and that Guckert sighting was probably from post-July 2003.

        Ari's tour of the Briefing Room is still online on the WH site (via your link above, archived November 2002). No footage of any correspondents in this one:

        But here's a transcript of some of Ari's remarks about the daily brieifings in the Press Room (starting around 2:50):

        [standing in front of the seats in the press room]

        "...typically the chairs are filled up with reporters who come here every day to do their jobs. The reporters will sit in these seats behind me. Interestingly they each have their names on their chairs for the organizations that they represent." [close up of chairs with NBC and CBS plaques on them.] "

        Think Talon News had a plaque?
