And the First Obama Overseas Interview Goes To…

Logan_7.20.jpgCBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan, who just relocated to Washington DC, was the first correspondent to interview Barack Obama during his just-begun, but much talked-about overseas trip. The discussion happened today in Afghanistan and aired this morning on Face the Nation and on CBS Evening News.

Politico’s Mike Allen reports, of the three network anchors covering the overseas trip Katie Couric will go first, interviewing Obama on Tuesday “in a country that the campaign does not want named for security reasons.” Charles Gibson gets Obama on Wednesday, and Brian Williams will go Thursday. Allen writes, at least one publication is not represented on the Obama press plane:

Forty journalists, including such leading correspondents as Dan Balz of The Washington Post, will be aboard his plane for next week’s swing through Jordan, Israel, Germany, France and England.

The campaign received 200 requests for press seats on the plane.

Among those for whom there was no room was Ryan Lizza, Washington correspondent of The New Yorker. The campaign, which was furious about the magazine’s satirical cover this week, cited space constraints in turning him away.

CNN/YouTube: Even More Reviews

> Alessandra Stanley in the NYTimes: “It was certainly fresh and more fun to watch, but the taped questions and canned candidate messages worked against the spontaneity that is supposed to be the point of a live debate.”

> David Hinckley in The NY Daily News: “At evening’s end, even the most hard-wired new-media enthusiast would have had a hard time selling this evening as the night the old system crashed.”

> Dan Balz and Anne Kornblut in The Washington Post: “The debate underscored the arrival of the Internet as a force in politics. The citizen-interrogators generated the most diverse set of questions in any of the presidential debates to date.”
