Pres. Obama Calls Prime Time News Conference for Wednesday….via Twitter

Obama_7.17.jpgFrom the White House Twitter:

You heard it here first: Primetime presidential news conference at the White House, Wed. 7/22 @ 9PM EDT

Okay, now let’s see which networks take the newser and which don’t.

And from our Twitter, did you notice the first words from the President at his health care statement this afternoon?

First words from POTUS during health care remarks:”I realize that Washington is often focused on the 24-hour news cycle”

> Update: NBC and FOX have the toughest choice about taking the newser. On NBC it’s an all new episode of “America’s Got Talent” (including Meredith Vieira‘s interview with Susan Boyle). And on FOX, they’ll be midway through a two-hour “So You Think You Can Dance?”

Over on ABC, “I Survived a Japanese Game Show” may be replaced with “I Survived an Obama News Conference.” And on CBS it’s a rerun of “Criminal Minds.”

> Update (2): We’ve reached out to all of the broadcast networks. So far NBC and FOX got back to us, but no decision has been made as of now (Friday at 5:40pm).
