Preventing Another ‘Jackass’ Moment

By Chris Ariens 

This afternoon, the Pres. Obama is taping his interviews with five Sunday public affairs shows. ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and Univision will each have 15 minutes with the president.

Insiders tell TVNewser there have been “major precautions” to make sure that the nets can’t hear each other’s interviews — in light of the “jackass” incident earlier this week.
