  • White House beer summit falls flat

    EVEN Barack Obama had trouble clearly articulating what was achieved by a much-hyped "beer summit" in the Rose Garden of the White House yesterday. As host, he played the role of peacemaker: Obama invited a black Harvard professor and the white cop who arrested him to bury the hatchet over a drink. It was an extraordinary intervention by a US President with a pressing agenda that includes combating the world recession and climate change. But the event, which attracted so much interest that cable TV networks ran countdown clocks, had the taint of political theatre from the start. Obama was...

    CBS News reporter Mark Knoller issued a sharp retort to people on Twitter responding with derision to critics of Barack Obama's decision to go out for ice cream today while Iran is in the midst of a citizens revolt:"Surprised by the outrage at the ice cream outing. What is it you expect or want the US to do about Iran? Attack? War?"Knoller's liberal defense of Obama is not surprising. Four years ago he was Cindy Sheehan's head cheerleader when she arrived in Crawford, Texas to launch a protest against President Bush and the was in Iraq. Knoller failed to report...

    Barack Obama spoke at the National Archives last Thursday on the war on terror (not that he used that term). After paying tribute to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and before turning to a defense of his policies, the President of the United States said: I stand here today as someone whose own life was made possible by these documents. My father came to our shores in search of the promise that they offered. My mother made me rise before dawn to learn of their truth when I lived as a child in a...

    President Obama abruptly interrupted today's White House Press Briefing to "do the job himself" and report his conversation with retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter. I was kind of hoping he was going to fire Gibbs on the spot, but then again, I would miss the circus clown in action everyday with the press corps!

    President Barack Obama has asked to make a prime-time appearance during May sweeps. White House officials have requested up to an hour of airtime for Wednesday, April 29, according to TV Week. The press conference, which falls on the 100th day of Obama's presidency, will probably air in the 8 o'clock hour and address questions of the president's performance. Broadcast networks have not yet announced their response, but a source said that they will most likely agree to the administration's request. Will you tune in to President Obama's "100 Days" press conference? Or have there been too many already?

    While the American media paints Barack Obama’s European tour as a balm on strained relations with EU allies, Europeans have a much different reaction to Obama today. After Obama endorsed Turkey’s bid to enter the EU, the Continental grumbling has broken through in the media — and the political class. Der Spiegel reports that German and French officials have begun complaining about Obama’s arrogance in injecting himself into a European decision, including French President Nicolas Sarkozy:

    STRASBOURG, France — President Obama, appearing on the eve of a NATO summit meeting here, told a cheering crowd of young people on Friday that “America is changing, but it cannot be America alone that changes.” The gathering resembled any of the countless, similar rallies held during his presidential campaign. But this one took place in the Alsatian border region of France and Germany, not in a gymnasium in Des Moines, and Mr. Obama seemed bent on repairing soured trans-Atlantic relations that began with the American-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    Oh Gordon, your smile! The Prime Minister, appearing alongside Barack Obama after breakfast today, stared at his American visitor and almost shattered the TV camera lenses with his moony grin. You could have played Jewish harp with his lower lip, it was stretched so twangy tight. Messrs Mills and Boon, when next looking for a book cover for one of their romantic novellas, when next seeking an illustration of doggy devotion, could do worse than use a photograph of the Prime Minister at the meeting. Mr Obama uttered a sentence. Mr Brown nodded. Mr Obama paused. Mr Brown froze, frowning....

It didn't escape Cowell's notice that he received a mention from the commander in chief on the "Tonight Show" last week,...

    Fans of American Idol might be disappointed that the show is being pre-empted for the prime time press conference President Barack Obama will be holding on Tuesday night, but most of us would probably rather hear more about the federal budget. That is, of course, what Obama will be speaking about before reporters start asking questions. The deficit, buying bad bank assets, and energy policies will likely be high on the list of issues he addresses. The press conference will be held Tuesday, March 24 at 5:00 p.m. PST / 8:00 p.m. EST in the East Room of the White...

  • Are Obama’s primetime TV appearances designed to damage Fox?

    03/19/2009 12:19:04 PM PDT · by slomark · 31 replies · 1,391+ views
    President Obama is wearing out his welcome with America’s television networks. Especially at Fox, home of his harshest critics. The economy is struggling, advertising sales are dropping, ratings are sagging, and all the networks lose revenue Obama interrupts their regular primetime programming. But none are impacted as severly as Fox. Obama always requests primetime coverage on Tuesday, the one night of the week that does the most damage to Fox. Fox “owns” Tuesday nights thanks to its two-hour American Idol programming block. Next week the network will be forced to shift its line-up, pushing each of the regular “Idol” broadcasts...

    Obama will be holding a townhall meeting on Wednesday in Orange County. Tickets are being given out starting at 10am on Tuesday, but the TV news showed that people were already waiting in line. So, you have to go *now*. The goal is to make him look bad by asking him this question: The stimulus bill will save or create millions of jobs. But, there will still be millions of unemployed Americans, right? Unfortunately, in the final bill, provisions to prevent illegal aliens from receiving jobs were stripped out. That means that every stimulus job that's taken by an illegal...

    Networks are pulling their shows over to the side of the road to make room for the lights and sirens of president Barack Obama's latest primetime address. Obama will take to the air next Tuesday evening on four broadcast networks and bump the most popular series on television, Fox's "American Idol." Fulfilling their scheduling civic duty is starting to seem increasingly cumbersome to broadcasters, however. Between a struggling economy and ratings sagging in midseason, every interruption costs networks advertising dollars and momentum. "At a time when we're struggling not only financially but to build audiences, this doesn't help on either...

    resident Barack Obama is getting away from Washington for a few days to his home in Chicago, leaving behind Cabinet headaches and a partisan divide over his economic stimulus package. Obama was to make a Friday afternoon flight with his wife, Michelle, and daughters to his chilly hometown, his first return there since taking office. Aides said he planned a low-key, four-day holiday weekend, including a Valentine's Day dinner on Saturday with his wife and a likely basketball game with friends. Congress this week reached a compromise on a $790 billion economic package that Obama had wanted to sign before...

WASHINGTON (AP) - On the rockiest day of his young administration, President Barack Obama did what surely made him happy for a while. He left. With little notice, the president and first lady Michelle Obama bolted the gated compound of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in their tank of a limousine on Tuesday. They ended up at a Washington public school, greeted...
