Anderson: "There's a good chance the president is watching this interview or will watch this interview. What is your message to the president?" @mPinoe  paused, thought about it, then looked straight into the camera and said this.

Over at @TheOnion , they just publish this story over and over

Scott Pelley on CBS just now: @60Minutes  has obtained a letter that indicates" the whistleblower "is under federal protection -- because he or she fears for their safety."
