President Obama’s news conference this evening lasted pretty exactly an hour as promised to the networks, and he took questions from 13 reporters (lucky 13- President Obama took 13 questions at a previous primetime press conference).
In this order: AP’s Jennifer Loven (three for three being called on first), The Detroit News’ Deb Price, ABC’s Jake Tapper, CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller, NBC’s Chuck Todd, Reuters’ Jeff Mason, CBS’ Chip Reid, CNN’s Ed Henry, NYT’s Jeff Zeleny (“surprised, troubled, enchanted and humbled”), Telemundo’s Lori Montenegro, BET’s Andre Showell, Time’s Michael Scherer and WSJ’s Jonathan Weisman.
And who didn’t get called on this time? Fox News.
