Terry Moran Gets Obama In Baghdad

moranobama_7-21.JPGA day after CBS’s Lara Logan got an interview with Barack Obama in Afghanistan, ABC’s Terry Moran gets the sit-down interview with Obama in Baghdad. It will be Obama’s only television interview from Iraq.

Portions will air on World News with the entire interview on Nightline.

Moran also got the first sit-down with Obama (pictured) in March after the candidate’s race relations speech.

And if you’re keeping track at home, of Obama’s foreign interviews, the AP’s David Bauder has the run down: Katie Couric gets Obama in Jordan tomorrow, Charles Gibson‘s Obama interview happens in Israel on Wednesday and Brian Williams gets Obama in Germany on Thursday.

In the lead-up to the trip, CBS’s Jeff Greenfield offered up his perspective on the coverage. From last Friday’s Evening News:

This saturation of coverage has already led the conservative blogosphere to offer blistering critiques of a liberal media slavishly treating Obama as a pop star. But, of course, Katie, the sheer presence of media in no way guarantees favorable coverage. In some ways, it makes the possibility of a misstep that much more dangerous.
