CAIB Photo by Rick Stiles 2003
A member of the press surrenders his cell phone in exchange for his copy of the CAIB report. The press was afforded a controlled opportunity to review the document a few hours prior to the official release of the report. This was done as an embargo in which reporters surrendered their cell phones, pagers, Blackberries, and wireless computer modems before entering a room in which they were sequestered until the report's official release. No one was allowed to leave the controlled area until 10:00 am. The board wanted the press to have adequate time to review the report in order to prepare an accurate reportage without the temptation to rush through it, perhaps introducing inaccuracies, in order to compete with other members of the press in being the first to break the story.
