The Gettysburg Address was a famous speech in American history.
During Day 2, CNB journalist Ron Wieland claimed on the news that he had found evidence of an imminent terrorist attack and then had been held against his will in the Northwest Regional Operations Complex for several hours. President David Palmer was forced to issue a statement around 5:00 pm confirming the threat but promising that the matter was under control. After it was over, Palmer commented to Mike Novick that it was hardly the Gettysburg Address, but would tide over the press for the time being. ("Day 2: 5:00pm-6:00pm")
