People Are Still Talking About Mitt Romney’s Standoff with Denver Reporter

Mitt Romney Gets Frustrated with KCNC Reporter When She Asks Viewer’s Facebook Question

Mitt Romney fielded questions with the poise of a seasoned presidential candidate during a series of one-on-one interviews with Denver reporters on Wednesday, but at one point he became frustrated with KCNC‘s Shaun Boyd when she asked him a question that a viewer had shared on the station’s Facebook page.

“Aren’t there issues of significance that you’d like to talk about?” Romney shot back. Read more

Pres. Obama Goes Local, Again. Interviews with WFAA, KCNC, WTHR and WRAL

This afternoon in the Map Room of the White House, anchors and reporters from WFAA (ABC) in Dallas, KCNC (CBS) Denver, WTHR (NBC) Indianapolis and WRAL (CBS) Raleigh will head to the White House for interviews with Pres. Obama. This is a continued effort by the White House to localize their message — in this case, the president’s “shared responsibility and shared prosperity” push.

KCNC political reporter Shaun Boyd will interview the president. On Twitter, the station is promoting live reports at “5p/6p/10p.” For the White House, the hope is that KCNC shares the video with other CBS O&Os in, for example, Sacramento, and Dallas/Ft. Worth.

In Dallas/Ft. Worth’s WFAA, the White House gets access to other Belo-owned stations across Texas — KHOU (CBS) in Houston, KENS (CBS) in San Antonio and KVUE (ABC) in Austin. USA Today has more on Obama’s Texas strategy.

This is the third in a wave of local TV interviews. Last month, the president sat down with WSOC (Charlotte) anchor Natalie Pasquarella, WSVN (Miami) anchor Lynn Martinez, and WPVI’s (Philadelphia) Jim Gardner, who has interviewed every president since 1976.

In February, Obama did interviews with Carol Williams of Cincinnati’s WCPO, Charles Benson of Milwaukee’s WTMJ, and Ryan Nobles of Richmond’s WWBT.
