Was Obama's Sunday Media Blitz Too Much?

Ad Feedback

President Obama launched a full-scale media blitz on Sunday with five interviews on five television networks.
While he talked about everything from Afghanistan to race relations, his main objective was still health care reform.
So far, the president has given three times as many interviews as the last two presidents.
Even some in the mainstream media are asking if all of this media exposure is overkill and analysts say viewers may start to tune him out, because they see him all the time.

"If you're doing five shows as President of the Untied States on a Sunday, it's four too many," said Prof. David Gergen, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

Professor Larry Sabato, director at University of Virginia Center for Politics, said no president ever wants to become video wallpaper.

"People do tune you out because they simply assume you don't have anything new to say," he said.

This week, the Senate Finance Committee begins amending its version of the president's health care reform agenda.
Lawmakers on both sides are opposing parts of that bill for many reasons.
Pro-life senators are expected to try and add language to specifically prohibit tax payer dollars going to fund abortions.
