WRC, KYW and Cox Television Talk Debt Deadline with President Obama

President Obama sat down with three local stations yesterday to talk about the national debt and the economy. This is the second round of local interviews Obama has done this month, as the White House makes a continued push to localize their message.

Obama was interviewed by Chris May of KYW (pictured at left), Jim Vance of WRC and Scott Macfarlane of Cox Television. The hot topic in the interviews, which ran about eight minutes each, was the increasingly acrimonious negotiations between Obama and congressional leadership as the debt deadline looms.

The interviews were embargoed until 5 p.m. yesterday, but began running on the respective stations on the evening broadcasts. Cox Television owns 11 local stations nationwide and ran Macfarlane’s interview on several different stations.
