President Obama Grants Interviews To CBS News, Telemundo

By Alex Weprin Comment

President Obama has granted interviews to two U.S. TV outlets, CBS News newsmagazine “60 Minutes” and Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo.

CBS broke in with a special report at 4 PM with a very brief clip from the interview, which had President Obama responding to Mitt Romney‘s statement on the situation in Libya. Steve Kroft asked the President whether the remarks were irresponsible:

“I’ll let the American people judge that,” Obama replied. “There’s a broader lesson to be learned here: Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later.”

The full interview will air on “60 Minutes” at some point in the near future (not this Sunday), with excerpts on tonight’s “CBS Evening News.”

The Telmundo interview will be conducted by José Díaz-Balart and will air tomorrow on “Noticiero Telemundo “and Sunday on “Enfoque con Jose Diaz-Balart.”
