Watch Pokemon Go-Playing Reporter Get Caught During State Dept. Briefing

    Even reporters in Washington DC are playing Pokemon Go. During a State Department briefing on Thursday, spokesperson John Kirby called out a member of the press for playing the wildly popular game in the middle of a briefing on the fight against ISIS.
    "You're playing the Pokemon thing right there, aren't you?" Kirby said in the middle of his comments about combating the terror group. The unidentified reporter responded, "I'm just keeping an eye on it."

    Kirby then launched back into his prepared remarks. When he was done, he came back to the reporter and said, "Did you catch one?" The man replied that he hadn't, in part because "the signal's not very good" in the State Department briefing room.
    "I'm sorry about that," Kirby said in response.
    This is not the first event to be interrupted by Pokemon Go. Earlier this month, a news anchor walked through a weather broadcast while playing the game, though this may have been staged.
    Seemingly everyone is playing Pokemon Go, while presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have also responded to the craze.
    The game has led to some crazy stories, too. A man claims he was stabbed while playing Pokemon Go, but instead of going to the hospital right away, he stopped to pick up chips and beer. For more on Pokemon Go, check out our roundup of all the news about it.
