Obama Holds Oil Spill News Conference

At 12:50pmET this afternoon, President Obama held a news conference from the East Room at the White House to address the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

As the AP points out, the president “held 12 full blown news conferences last year. He has held two so far this year, and none since the oil spill began.”

The conference are being carried live by the four broadcast nets with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, Harry Smith on CBS, and Brian Williams on NBC. FOX broadcast also aired a special report anchored by Gregg Jarrett in NYC with Chris Wallace in DC.

CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are also carrying the remarks. HLN took them initially, but said they would continue to monitor.

All three business nets also took the news conference.

The Weather Channel took the president’s remarks as well. They were also broadcast on C-SPAN3.

More: First question to the AP. ABC’s Jake Tapper gets the second question and NBC’s Chuck Todd the third. CBS News’ Chip Reid asks the fifth followed by Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman (who’s married to MSNBC’s David Shuster). The last question goes to Fox News’ Major Garrett.

More: The president spoke and took questions until 1:53pmET, with the cable and broadcast nets sticking with the conference for its entirety.

Joe and Mika Give Shoutout to David Shuster

JoeMika_4.21.jpgFishbowlDC headed to the Opinion Awards last night which included a bunch of boldface newser names including Carlson, Mitchell, Bash and Allen, and those MSNBC morning talkers, talking about one of their colleagues:

“Morning Joe” hosts and the evening’s emcees Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski showed their love with a shout out to MSNBC’s David Shuster who is currently suspended from his job for an indefinite amount of time. Shuster and wife, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman later dodged questions about the suspension from Examiner’s Tara Palmeri, claiming a stomach ache.

Could David Shuster Still End up at CNN?

Shuster_4.6.jpgNow that David Shuster is all but finished at MSNBC, is CNN still interested in picking him up?

“We decline comment,” said CNN spokeswoman Christa Robinson when asked that question, and a few others, about the situation.

MSNBC put Shuster on indefinite suspension today for participating in the taping of a test run of a news show put together by the CNN talent development group. In any given year, the group will produce 10 to 12 of these so-called pilots, including this one earlier this year. “Since he used to cover Washington for Fox and then he worked for MSNBC it would be a piece of cake for CNN to re-invent Shuster as a newsy host who knows politics and who’s mainly about the facts,” says NYU professor of journalism and author of PressThink, Jay Rosen. “I think CNN is ideologically committed to The View from Nowhere, which they see as bearing no ideology,” Rosen tells TVNewser.

But Shuster has gone ideological in recent years. At times, drawing the ire of bosses.

Shuster, based in Washington, is married to Bloomberg White House correspondent Julianna Goldman. He was called to New York yesterday to meet with MSNBC president Phil Griffin. Shuster’s agent was also in the room. Insiders don’t expect his return to the MSNBC airwaves anytime soon.

Obama to Make Sunday Show Rounds?

Word is spreading that President Obama could have designs to expand his recent media push by appearing on the CBS, ABC, and NBC Sunday morning public affairs shows. Earlier today, the NY Times’ Adam Nagourney wrote:

White House officials said that while nothing is certain — schedules are still being worked out and all that — they are looking to land Mr. Obama to back-to-back appearances on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, “Meet the Press” on NBC, and “Face the Nation” on CBS. No word on Fox or CNN. Should this happen, Mr. Obama will be the first sitting president to blanket the Sunday morning programs, albeit potentially one limited to just the major broadcast networks.

The networks are mum so far.

It’s a full-court press on healthcare reform: his address to congress on Wednesday, “60 Minutes” yesterday, and Bloomberg TV tonight, although that is more about the one-year anniversary of the financial collapse. Bloomberg White House correspondent Julianna Goldman‘s interview airs at 6:30pmET.

> Update, 6:54pmET: FishbowlDC confirms Pres. Obama will do five Sunday shows. ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and — not FOX — but Univision.

Pres. Obama’s Healthcare News Conference


What Are You Watching?(survey)

> First question goes to Ben Feller of the AP. He asks about — wait for it — healthcare. How to pay for it, and the deadline to get it passed.

> Really long first answer. Second question goes to David Alexander of Reuters, again on healthcare – the August deadline.

> Third question from Chuck Todd of NBC. Cost of healthcare. And it must be balmy in the East Room as Chuck is looking shiny. Feller of the AP did too. Chuck gets a follow-up.

> Jake Tapper of ABC gets the fourth question. What will Americans have to give up with healthcare reform?

> Chip Reid of CBS gets question five. Taking politics out of healthcare reform.

> Christi Parsons of the Chicago Tribune gets question six and asks the President if he’s fulfiling his promise of transparency.

> Julianna Goldman (Mrs. David Shuster) of Bloomberg News gets question seven and asks whether Obama administration needs to take a harder line on Wall Street risk-takers.

> Question eight goes was supposed to go to Stephen Koff of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Instead, McClatchy’s Steve Thomma asks whether POTUS and Congress would abide by the same benefits in the public option.

> Koff then gets in a quick question ahead of Obama’s trip to Cleveland tomorrow.

> Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times gets the last question and asks about the arrest of Prof. Henry Louis Gates. Obama: “Skip Gates is a friend so I may be a little biased. Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were already in their own home.”

The First Press Briefing: Plante, Thomas, Henry…

The cable news networks all carried Robert Gibbs‘ first White House press briefing this afternoon.

Among the new crop covering the Obama administration: Chuck Todd for NBC, Chip Reid for CBS, Jake Tapper for ABC.

Helen Thomas, who’s been covering presidents since Kennedy, asked Gibbs about torture…which he may soon be feeling himself from some in the press corps who were accused of going easy on candidate Obama and pledge to be tougher on President Obama.

PlillipsHenry_1.22.jpgBefore the briefing got underway, CNN’s new chief White House correspondent Ed Henry explained to anchor Kyra Phillips that when the briefing room was renovated in 2007, CNN got in a seat in the front row, while “another cable network” is still in the second row.

Henry: That was based mostly by seniority, because CNN had been around a little longer than another cable network that shall go nameless.

Phillips: I already saw Major Garrett in the second row there. As long as Fox is behind you…

Henry: He is, and he’s turning red right now.

Phillips: Tell him I said ‘hi’ and I miss him working for CNN.

Henry: Okay. Kyra Phillips says hello. I think we probably should get ready for this presser now, Kyra.

Phillips: (laughter) Okay see you in a little bit. Thank You. You’re a trooper. Oh boy. I hope I keep my job.

Also getting in a question to Gibbs: Bloomberg News’ Julianna Goldman (aka Mrs. David Shuster).
