Obama Snubs Fox News

The president is going to appear on five Sunday talk shows - five - to press his case for health care, White House officials disclosed. That is a presidential record.
Mr. Obama is going to appear on This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC. And Meet the Press on NBC. And Face the Nation on CBS. In between, he is going to sit down for interviews on CNN and Univision. (Fox News didn't make the cut).
To be honest, I didn't even know that Univision had a Sunday show (did you?) -- but that isn't stopping the President from taking to that network (along with four others) instead of Fox News. Then again, considering that "Fox News Sunday" draws less than half the viewership of its nearest rival, CBS' "Face the Nation", perhaps it's not such a surprise that the President is skipping the conservative net's Sunday flagship.
