Why is an Interview With Boehner ‘Rare’?

CNBC released an alert announcing that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is rare. So we wondered, why is it rare? He has appeared relatively recently on Fox News Sunday, NBC’s MTP and FNC’s “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren.

“CNBC MEDIA ALERT: SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN BOEHNER SITS DOWN FOR A RARE INTERVIEW WITH CNBC’S LARRY KUDLOW MONDAY ON CNBC’S “THE KUDLOW REPORT”

The “rare” interview happens airs tonight at 7 p.m. Excerpts will air throughout the day.

We requested a comment from CNBC on why this is considered an unusual interview. CNBC Spokeswoman Jennifer Dauble explained, “Speaker of the House Boehner does not grant many interviews, especially to business & financial news.”
