So have you heard about the 10-year-old girl who missed her last day of school yesterday so she could attend the Pres. Obama town hall in Wisconsin yesterday? And then Pres. Obama found out, so he wrote her teacher a note, excusing her absence?

Well now Kennedy Corpus (and her dad, John, who brought her) is enjoying a bit of a spotlight, and will appear on NBC’s Weekend Today show tomorrow morning.

They also have made the cable rounds: MSNBC at 11:54amET, CNN at 1:33pmET…but no Fox News.

Sources tell TVNewser the Corpus family was told by NBC they were not allowed to do the FNC interview, which was slated to take place during “Happening Now” (11am-1pmET). The interview with Fox News had to be canceled at the last minute.

An NBC spokesperson tells TVNewser: “We agreed that she could honor any interviews she scheduled prior to the Weekend Today booking.”
