President Obama appeared with Ortiz in the image, taken during a White House visit by the World Series champion Boston Red Sox. It was later revealed that Ortiz had an agreement with Samsung to promote the company’s phones.
“Well, he obviously didn't know anything about Samsung's connection to this,” Pfeiffer said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “And perhaps maybe this will be the end of all selfies.”
“We've had conversations with Samsung about this and expressed our concerns,” Pfeiffer added.
He would not provide specifics of those discussions when asked by host Bob Schieffer.
“We've leave that conversation between the lawyers,” Pfeiffer said.
