WTMJ’s Charles Benson is set to interview President Obama today and the Milwaukee NBC-affiliate is asking its viewers to contribute questions.
Benson, who interviewed Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign, has been invited to White House–along with a handful of other journalists–to do a one-on-one interview with the President.
“As a journalist, this is my Super Bowl,” Benson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel about the opportunity. “I’m a guy that likes to cover politics. It’s one of the reasons I got into journalism.”
In addition to the viewer question(s), Benson plans to speak with the President about his recent budget proposal, which has been criticized by both the left and the right.
