Fox Won’t Carry Obama Presser On Network Wednesday

Fox will not carry President Obama’s press conference Wednesday at 8pmET on the network, but Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network will air the presser in its entirety. The network will alert viewers that the press conference is available on FNC and FBN at the top of the 8pmET hour.

CBS, ABC and NBC have announced they will air the presser on the nets. CNN and C-SPAN will also have live coverage beginning at 8pmET.

MORE: Drudge linked to this THR blog the Live Feed, on Twitter last night, which reported, “Sources said that NBC demonstrated reluctance to carry Obama’s news conference live. Faced with the prospect of only one or two major broadcasters — CBS and ABC — covering the event, the White House moved its start time to 8 p.m.”
