    Obama to Appear on 5 Sunday Talk Shows This Weekend

    Obama to Appear on 5 Sunday Talk Shows This Weekend

    By Anne E. Kornblut


    President Obama will appear on five Sunday talk shows this weekend, a senior administration official said Monday, becoming the first president to do so as he attempts to maintain momentum for his health care overhaul.

    In making the rounds -- appearing on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Univision back-to-back -- Obama will do a modified version of "the Full Ginsburg," as such a sweep was dubbed after Monica Lewinsky's lawyer, William H. Ginsburg, became the first person to do five broadcast shows it in 1998.

    They shouldn't even let FOX in the White House briefing room.

    All they are doing is lending credibility to a biased, right wing drama show posing as a News organization. FOX is openly advocating for the Republican Party. FoxPAC: Network Again Engaging in Political Advocacy with "9-12 Project" | Media Matters for America

    In a just World they would be kicked to the curb, but with spineless Dems in charge they'll just take the abuse and hope if they are nice, FOX will stop talking bad about them...LOL

    This has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment.

    FOX news is free to say whatever they please.

    And the Obama Adminstration is free to ban right wing hacks posing as reporters from the White House briefing room.

    Just because you call yourself "fair and balanced" doesn't mean you are.

    Certainly glad he doesn't have anything better to do.

    I cried foul when the Bush admin did that, and I'd do the same with Obama. I don't think he's free to ban the press and only allow in that which is friendly to him. The press' job is to aggressively question the government on what it's doing so that the People can better understand what it is that the government is up to. Now, in this day and age of horribly partisan "news" networks (FOX is not alone on this one), I admit that's not really done as well as it should be. But that is there job and the President shouldn't be able to only allow networks which will pitch him softballs. In fact, if we're banning press agencies; those are the ones I think you could best argue to ban.

    Frankly, I think he should do Fox. Not that it would matter, though. But he should do an interview with them anyway. What better way to gain support for your policies than to go on a talkshow of the opposition and state his case. Sure, they'll try to do everything they can to paint him in a negative light and I suppose that's why he won't go on Fox, but if he has his duck in a row, what's the harm?

    State your case, make it a good argument, be factual, bring the opposition on your side. That's what I would do. Consider this: If the President is able to debunk alot of the mis-information out there and make it clear why health care reform is so important economically and medically, why not do it on air with the one network station that's outright against you?

    I predict that he will make people even sicker of seeing his silly ass shooting his mouth off, saying the same ole damn thing...again.

    Personally, I won't be at all pissed if he keeps FNC out of the loop. Actually, I would be amazed that he wouldn't want to show up at the highest rated news channel in the country.

    This will make propaganda tour #5, or is it #6?

    Never in the history of this country have we ever witnessed this kind of media placated propaganda come from the oval office.
