Tavis Smiley Snubbed by Obama White House

By Matthew Fleischer Comment

In an appearance on CSPAN today, PBS’ Tavis Smiley brought up the fact that while Barack Obama used to make routine appearances on Smiley’s radio and television programs, these days he can’t even get an invite to White House press events–let along land an interview with the President.

“He’s the first president in my professional history that has not invited me to the White House.”

As Cornel West noted on the same program, however, election season is coming up. That will probably change shortly.
