I assume that Laura Poitras never used gpg before or at least Snowden
assumed so. I guess the main intend of the question were to sensitize
her of the topic and make her think about possible threats and teach her.
And he explicitly asks to confirm that on a different communication
channel to avoid the problem you mentioned.

If you assume she is new to gpg I guess that is a wrong expectation.
