100th Daygasm: Obama ‘asks’ networks for hour of primetime during sweeps

By Doug Powers  •  April 24, 2009 09:44 AM

Here’s your feelgood story of the day: President Obama is saying “thanks for all your support” to the media behemoths who carried his water during the campaign by swiping a valuable hour of time during May Sweeps:

White House officials have requested up to an hour of airtime for Wednesday, April 29, according to TV Week. The press conference, which falls on the 100th day of Obama’s presidency, will probably air in the 8 o’clock hour and address questions of the president’s performance.

Broadcast networks have not yet announced their response, but a source said that they will most likely agree to the administration’s request.

I hope Obama ends up “requesting” time every night in prime time — so much so that even Mussolini would think he’s overdoing it on the media control. It’s the least the networks deserve.

But, if Obama’s press conference next Wednesday interferes with the Tigers/Yankees game that night on ESPN, then my network schadenfreude will turn to frustration.
