President Kardashian Sits for Hard-Hitting Interview With Glamour Magazine

Barack Obama

It’s a step up from his recent appearances on ET and morning radio in New Mexico. Everywhere I turn I see Mitt Romney giving interviews, even on hostile networks. Well, that’s pretty much all of them, but at least he’s man enough to take some tough questions.

A woman’s magazine like Glamour would not traditionally be in play for an interview with the President — first ladies have been more their turf — but agreeing to the interview is a mark of changing media strategies. The Obama campaign has recently been exploring alternative news outlets to press their message — ESPN Magazine, People magazine and Entertainment Tonight have all scored interviews, much to the dismay of the White House press corps, who have not enjoyed the usual privilege of questioning the President since Aug. 19. Stephanie Cutter, a spokeswoman for the campaign, described these outlets as being “equally important” to traditional political media.

Glamour pitched them on a big audience, said Washington editor Linda Kramer Jenning. “There’s a lot of attention being paid to young, women voters,” Jenning said. “That’s the calling card that opens the door.” It took five months to lock down some face time.

If Romney was so chicken as to avoid the media like this they would pummel him nonstop. Even the people Obama’s avoiding don’t have the guts to speak up.

    Romney doesn’t have the option of going to those places to do fluff interviews. If Romney did an interview at ESPN whoever got the interview would go John Stewart, pluck the clown nose off and attack. If he’s going to be interviewed by hostile parties they might as well be MSM since they will need access in a potential Romney administration and they have some accountability. I doubt one of those pompous moron/blowhards at ESPN much less People or ET would even show the modicum of personal control exhibited by the Chris Matthews or David Gregory’s of the world.

    Also it would diminish Romney to get into a contentious conversation about almost any topic with Billy Bush or Tony Kornheiser. Sure Obama can bask in the love of some idiot and answer questions about what is his favorite color but imagining him arguing policy points with Mary Hart shows how ridiculous and desperate and, well, cowardly the whole enterprise is. I always think about this whenever Obama gives one of his media criticism speeches and talks about them wanting to sensationalize or go after ratings. I’m like, you just did 10 minutes with the Zoo Crew from Albaquerque when they came back from commercial after you left they did 15 minutes of fart jokes. Get a grip jerk.

    Nah, ESPN would sic Stuart Scott (Professional Obama felator) on Romney. The lazy eye would confuse Mitt and then Scott would start asking him stuff like “So would you say your opposition to Barrack Obama is exclusively because he’s black or only mostly because he’s black” and “When do you think you realize for sure, that you’re racist” or “The President did substantially better than you did on your NCAA bracket. Harry Reid said he heard from a guy that you said it was because Obama is black. Can you confirm that you are, in fact, a racist”
