CBS Ignores Obama News Conference, Promotes Michelle Obama Dancing Instead

On Thursday, August 7, CBS This Morning’s coverage of President Obama’s Africa Summit consisted of a glowing puff piece on how being First Lady is similar to belonging “to a sorority.” Rather than acknowledge the existence of President Obama’s news conference from Wednesday night, Major Garrett, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent played up “Michelle Obama and Laura Bush shared the summit stage with moderator Cokie Roberts and talked candidly about the hard knocks of political criticism.” Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters.
