All 3 Network Anchors join Obama on European Road Trip / Media love-in

Ok, this is just ridiculous…

In case you haven’t noticed, or are drunk on the Kool-Aid, the media kind of worships Obama. Just a few weeks ago when John McCain was in Colombia at the same time as the release of the US captives held by the FARC, instead of talking to McCain about his trip and the release, the media was gushing about how great it was Obama was at a soccer game with his daughters.

Now the great European roadtrip by Obama is going to be filled with high profile media guys, including all three network anchors.

Senator John McCain’s trip to Iraq last spring was a low-key affair: With his ordinary retinue of reporters following him abroad, the NBC News anchor Brian Williams reported on his arrival in Baghdad from New York, with just two sentences tacked onto the “in other political news” portion of his newscast.

But when Obama heads for Iraq and other locations overseas this summer, Williams is planning to catch up with him in person, as are the other two evening news anchors, Charles Gibson of ABC and Katie Couric of CBS, who, like Williams, are far along in discussions to interview Obama on successive nights.

Give me a break…
