There is no interview President Obama will do with any network, excluding Fox News, that Noel Sheppard won’t complain about… particularly before it even airs.
In an October 27 piece, the NewsBusters’ associate editor whines in his typically petulant tone about how the President will be sitting down for an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe“, hosted by Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. Mind you, this is the first interview in years, since being elected, that Obama is doing with any host from MSNBC. That fact doesn’t matter to Sheppard, however, as he’s already touting the interview as softball, before even watching it:
Having not done a press conference since June, Barack Obama has instead appeared on ABC’s The View, CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, and NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Apparently feeling MSNBC’s Morning Joe will present him with similar softballs and friendly confines, the President is doing an interview with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Saturday to be aired Monday just eight days before Americans go to the polls.
