Do you feel like you haven’t seen enough of President Barack Obama lately? It’s been nearly two days since his last speech!
Well if you need your Obama fix – get ready for the Commander-in-Chief to go on the biggest media push ever: five, yes, five Sunday morning shows this weekend. But no FOX.
According to Mark Knoller‘s Twitter feed:
WH spokesman Robt Gibbs confirms Obama will appear on Sunday shows this coming weekend on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and Univision.
That means FOX News Sunday is the odd show out – and Univision completes the five-show sweep. We’ll call it “El Completo Ginsburg“.
This is beyond unprecedented – according to the New York Times Caucus blog, “Newsmakers in the past have managed to pull of the unlikely feat of hitting the big three Sunday interview shows on CBS, NBC and ABC. But this is a presidential first.”
Pres. Obama and the White House may like to take shots at the media – but he sure enjoys going on their news shows. And this only furthers the divide between the administration and Fox News. It’s a striking decision by a White House that continues to talk bipartisanship, while staging what seems like a boycott of Fox and its properties.
Guess that O’Reilly interview isn’t happening?
