Washington, D.C. White House Press Briefing Room
You've seen the picture about 8,000 times a year -- the President, the press secretary or some top aides briefs the media on an important matter at the White House. You can hear the reporters' questions, but you can't see the rest of the room.
Here's what the view from the podium is like. In fairness, it's probably be re-done a few times since this photo was taken in 1996. Still, you can tell there's not much room in there. There are small spaces in the rooms in the back for the media to work individually. And that's ex-Buffalo Sabre Dave Hannan taking a picture in the middle of this shot, with ex-coach Ted Nolan just behind him.
