Skype publicized Vice President Joe Biden’s Wednesday immigration chat as a chance for regular people to pose questions directly to the Obama administration.
But those who actually got to speak directly with Biden were first recruited by Skype and vetted by the White House.
Skype spokesman Chaim Haas said the Microsoft-owned company reached out last week to people already active in the immigration debate in order to find people to interact with Biden and White House domestic policy chief Cecilia Munoz.
