President Barack Obama will appear on five – count them, five – Sunday morning talk shows this week, as well as an appearance on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday night.
The five show schedule was first performed in 1998, by Monica Lewinsky’s attorney William Ginsburg to defend her after the scandal with President Clinton. Are five Sunday talk show appearances too much? The White House says no.
White House deputy communications director Dan Pfeiffer told ABC News that the idea of “overexposure” is “an anachronistic view of how people consume news in this day and age.” Obama will appear on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and Univision. TVNewser has more on how the networks are promoting the interviews.
