Carla Marinucci, at the end of a story about the Napolitano interview, writes the following:
- Napolitano was also asked about the Secret Service's request to The Chronicle for permission to monitor phone traffic to the newspaper's headquarters.
- The request was denied, said David Byers, the newspaper's director of facilities and real estate.
- Napolitano was asked if the request was part of a new protocol in her agency. "I don't know the answer," she said, adding that she would look into the matter and get back to the paper.
