President Obama Met Off The Record With Conservative Journalists (HuffPost)
President Obama met Tuesday afternoon with a small group of conservative reporters, columnists and commentators for an off-the-record discussion. The group, according to a source familiar with the meeting, included Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot, National Review Washington editor Robert Costa, Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, syndicated columnists Kathleen Parker and Washington Post columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer. Obama and the journalists talked for about 90 minutes in the Roosevelt room. TheWrap President Obama blamed Republicans in Congress for putting the country on the brink of financial disaster in a Tuesday press conference about the government shutdown that clocked in at more than an hour — but that wasn’t enough time for the president to take questions from TV reporters. Obama answered questions from reporters with the AP, Bloomberg, Huffington Post, Reuters, NPR, New York Times, Financial Times, Roll Call, Agence France-Presse, CBS News (though that was Mark Knoller, who is primarily a CBS Radio reporter) and Real Clear Politics. Slate / Weigel Would the press conference have been improved by some Obamacare questions? Probably. (Having given a bunch of interviews about the topic since mid-September, he was probably ready with a robotic answer.) Is the White House press corps, generally, too inclined to let the president ramble about some existential issue? Sure. Doesn’t change the fact that the shutdown blew the exchanges, and immigration reform, and basically everything else out of the news — and some conservatives predicted that would happen. TVNewser The news conference ended without any of the major broadcast TV network correspondents being called on.

PBS Announces More Changes To Its News Lineup

hudson111.jpgYesterday’s news that Jim Lehrer‘s name will no longer be in the title for PBS‘ “NewsHour” wasn’t the only change in the non-profit network. “Newshour” was also partnering with digital media news outlet GlobalPost for international stories, and today brings news that PBS’ “Nightly Business Report” program has a new co-anchor to replace Paul Kangas.

Tom Hudson will officially take over the role as co-host on January 4, but will be eased into the transition of reporting with Susie Gharib as early as this Wednesday. Executive editor Rodney Ward was optimistic for Hudson’s arrival, saying that the former talk-radio host brings both “the old school journalistic fundamentals we cherish” as well as a Web-savviness that PBS is striving for.

Full press release after the jump.
