FOX Network Says No to Obama’s Prime Time Press Conference

leave a comment »

The FOX network announced this afternoon that it will not televise President Barack Obama’s prime-time news conference on Wednesday, and instead stay with its regular entertainment programming.

The news conference marks Obama’s 100th day as president. But FOX viewers will see an episode of the Tim Roth drama “Lie to Me.”

It’s the first time a broadcast network has refused Obama’s request. This will be the third prime-time news conference in Obama’s presidency. ABC, CBS and NBC are airing it.
