What we almost missed today…

• Check out President Obama’s fly-swatting skills in an interview above with CNBC’s John Harwood.

• Gawker takes a look at the Twitter habits of the White House press corps here.

• WebNewser points out the Secret Service has denied msnbc.com’s request for the names of all White House visitors from Jan. 20 to now. It also denied a narrower request by the nonpartisan watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which sought logs of visits by executives of coal companies.

• Julius Genachowski, President Obama’s nominee for chairman of the FCC, said today he does not support reinstating the fairness doctrine, as reported by Broadcasting and Cable.
