Tuff The Talk Of The Town On TV News

By Alex Weprin Comment

A heroic school clerk who talked down the shooter in a Georgia school earlier this week is making the TV rounds and talking to the President following her brave act.

During CNN “New Day'”s interview with President Obama this morning, the President revealed that he called Antoinette Tuff to thank her for her bravery.


Tuff also appeared on “AC360″ last night in what was billed as an “exclusive,” although it is worth noting that she appeared on ABC’s “World News” Tuesday night and “Good Morning America” Wednesday morning, as well as to some local TV stations, so it was not the first interview with her.

It was the first interview with Tuff and the 911 operator she called during the incident, which may have been enough to qualify it as an “exclusive,” as loose as the term is used nowadays.
