Obama selfie: White House objects to Samsung use

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David "Big Papi" Ortiz takes a selfie with President Obama on Tuesday on the South Lawn of the White House. Ortiz tweeted the selfie to his followers, and it was resent by tens of thousands, including Samsung, which retweeted it as an ad. The White House press secretary says Obama was not aware that the photo was part of a marketing stunt.
