UN Press Digging Into Oil For Food

On the eve of the unveiling of the second Volcker interim report on the Oil-for-Food scandal, this from the UN press corp:
Question: I would protest that there would be no photo opportunity of the report being handed over since this is a Security Council-authorized report very similar to Peter Fitzgerald’s and others. It is obviously a unique photo opportunity: a man given a job by the Secretary-General and the report is on the Secretary-General. We’re not even asking to ask questions, but using United Nations TV or still photos seems like some sort of cover-up.
Yes indeed-y, getting a photo of the hand-off ensures that there won't be any covering up going on at UN HQ on this one!
