Obama’s Post-Election Press Conference

President Obama is holding his first press conference in eight months, and the first since he won reelection 8 days ago. As we noted earlier, the networks are breaking into regular programming for the presser.

“I hear you have a few questions for me,” Obama said as he stepped up to the podium, before delivering a brief statement.

 

Among the likely topics of discussion are the Petraeus incident, his election win and the attack in Benghazi.

  • The first question went to the AP, as is customary, which asked about national security as it relates to the Petraeus scandal.
  • Question two went to CNN chief White House correspondent Jessia Yellin, who asked about the fiscal cliff as it related to tax cuts.

Charlie Rose Pulling Double Duty For Bloomberg TV Convention Coverage

Bloomberg TV is the latest network to slate 2012 convention coverage. Not surprisingly, its coverage will focus on economic issues, and will originate from the “Bloomberg Link” event space being set up in both Tampa and Charlotte.

Trish Regan will be the channel’s lead anchor for the conventions, while Charlie Rose will host his eponymous PBS and Bloomberg TV program nightly, in addition to his duties on “CBS This Morning.” Regan will anchor “Street Smart” every weekday from 3-5 PM, with nightly specials running from 9-10 PM each night, except the last night of each convention when it will run from 8-11 PM. The channel will also livestream its coverage online as well as events being held at the Bloomberg Link.

Bloomberg Washington editor Al Hunt, Bloomberg TV political analyst Matthew Dowd, Bloomberg View columnist Margaret Carlson, White House correspondents Hans Nichols and Julianna Goldman, along with chief Washington correspondent Peter Cook and Washington correspondent Meghan Hughes will all contribute to the channel’s coverage.

More information, after the jump.
