HINT: Did the person Truman fear hire a Catholic nun to decorate the White House?
The answer is after the JUMP.
Joe Kennedy retain to redecorate the White House. No one did. Yet a newspaper did actually go to press with the headline that Kennedys had hired a nun to decorate the White House. It was lazy reporting and could not have been further from the truth. Jacqueline Kennedy had retained New York WASP society decorator Sister Parish, and a reporter assumed the "sister" in her name meant she was a Catholic nun. Sometimes getting one's politics right means fact-checking with House & Garden.
