The big three broadcast networks all went into special report mode to cover president Obama’s press conference the situation in Japan, among other topics.

Even the Fox broadcast network covered the presser:

As one would expect, the cable news channels were also all over the press conference:

After reading a statement on Japan and a statement on the U.S. oil reserves, The President took questions.

Question one was from NBC’s Chuck Todd, who asked about Libyan leader Gaddafi.

Question two was from USA Today, which asked about the budget.

Question three was from ABC’s Jake Tapper, who asked about the problems reported with some nuclear power plants in Japan.

Question four was from CBS’ Chip Reid, about unrest in Libya.

Question five was about how much oil the U.S. could potentially release from its reserves.
