Later, she covered the White House. In this capacity, she covered the administration of President Barack Obama, traveling to Boston to report on the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., which President Obama called a "teachable moment" after the President initially blamed the police then took a more objective position after exculpatory evidence about the police was revealed.
