White House Interview Round-Up: WSB, WXYZ, WTKR, WKYC Sit Down with Obama

President Obama didn’t offer any etiquette advice to the four reporters invited to the White House on Tuesday for the latest round of local one-on-one interviews.

While WSB’s Justin Farmer, WXYZ’s Stephen Clark, WTKR’s Barbara Ciara, and WKYC’s Romona Robinson (video above) pressed Obama on hot-button issues, including rising gas prices and the weak economy, they didn’t goad the president into the type of reaction that WFAA’s Brad Watson received earlier this month.

President Hosts New Round of Local Interviews

President Obama is again sitting down with local stations for one-on-one interviews, as big-name reporters from Atlanta’s WSB, Cleveland’s WKYC, Detroit’s WXYZ, and WTKR in Hamptons Roads, VA are meeting with the President today to discuss issues affecting their local communities.

The White House says that the president will focus on his plan for deficit reform while also discussing topics significant to the stations’ local viewers.

It remains to be seen if WSB’s Justin Farmer, WKYC’s Romona Robinson, WXYZ’s Stephen Clark, or WTKR’s Barbara Ciara (video above) can spark the same type of buzz that WFAA’s Brad Watson did earlier this month when the president pointedly told him, “Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?” Read more

Following ‘Outburst Heard ‘Round the World,’ WFAA Posts Raw Footage of Obama Interview

In what Politico dubbed “the outburst heard ’round the world,” President Obama chided WFAA‘s Brad Watson at the end of a 7-minute interview on Monday, telling the veteran reporter, “Let me finish my answers next time we do an interview, all right?”

As news outlets around the country have picked up the story, the Dallas ABC-affiliate is now giving people the opportunity to decide for themselves if Watson (or the President) went too far.

WFAA has made raw footage of the interview (video above) available on its website and addressed the issue in a post, saying, “We heard from a variety of viewers: some believed Brad was too soft while others thought he was too harsh and still a few others thought his interview with President Obama was appropriate.”

With 2012 Election Looming, President Again Welcomes Local Reporters to White House

In what appears to be an ongoing strategy to reach local viewers as the 2012 election looms on the horizon, President Obama sat down with reporters from three local stations last Friday, moments after he delivered a statement announcing military action in Libya.

Following a similar arrangement last month in which reporters from Milwaukee’s WTMJ, Richmond’s WWBT, and Cincinnati’s WCPO were invited to the White House for one-on-one interviews with the President, crews from Charlotte’s WSOC, Philadelphia’s WPVI, and Miami’s WSVN headed to D.C. last week to speak with Obama.

The one-on-one interviews are an opportunity for local journalists to ask the President about issues directly related to their communities, while also perhaps giving Obama, who has faced criticism in the last several days over his handling of U.S. intervention in Libya, a reprieve from the regular hammering he receives from the national media.

On Friday, Obama sat down with WSOC anchor Natalie Pasquarella, WSVN anchor Lynn Martinez, and WPVI’s Jim Gardner, who has interviewed every president since 1976. Read more

WCPO’s Carol Williams Joins Other Local Reporters for Presidential Interview

“The idea on the White House’s part is the President is trying to sell his budget proposal,” WCPO‘s Carol Williams explained this morning as she stood outside the White House, awaiting her one-on-one interview with President Obama.

Like Charles Benson of Milwaukee’s WTMJ, Williams was invited to the White House to interview the President as he attempts to put a positive spin on his recent budget proposal.

Ryan Nobles of Richmond NBC-afiliate WWBT is also in D.C. today to interview Obama.  This morning, WCPO, WTMJ, and WWBT all asked their viewers to submit questions for the President.
