CBS RADIO NEWS WHITE HOUSE Correspondent MARK KNOLLER got front-page treatment from the WALL STREET JOURNAL for his widespread reputation for keeping an incredible amount of data and trivia about the Presidents.
KNOLLER, the paper wrote, "has for two decades been the unofficial keeper of presidential data. The NATIONAL ARCHIVES, the SMITHSONIAN, the WHITE HOUSE itself -- none hold the cache of detail that Mr. KNOLLER has squirreled into his crumb-littered cubby in the WHITE HOUSE briefing room."
Among information retained and collated by KNOLLER is the statistic that President OBAMA has used the phrase "will not rest" eleven times in speeches during his presidency through FEBRUARY 22nd, and President GEORGE W. BUSH used the same phrase 40 times.
KNOLLER was also responsible for doing a word count of the FEBRUARY 25th health care summit, determining that it ran to 60,000 words, the longest yet recorded, and kept the running total for President BUSH's vacation days and President CLINTON's world travels.
