The reporters were already there in a specific spot waiting for a statement. It just so happened that the team from The Times exited first, approached them and started giving their statement.

The reporters probably would have approached The Post as well but they decided that no additional statement was necessary.

Times Lawyer - "We should make a statement."

Bradlee - "I think that's her job."

Katherine Graham - "I believe everything we had to say we've already said."
