The white house press secretary and the Internet

Posted by Miri Barak on June 01, 2003

Hello:
Clinton's press secreatry meets the press and objects to the Internet as a news source. He says:
"It is truly a sorry day when you all walk in here and ask me questions based on a rumor mongerer's Internet Web site."

My questions:
1. a sorry day - is it a bad day or a deplorable day?
2. What does he mean by mongerer's..."

Most Grateful to you
