ABC, CBS, NBC to Air Obama Press Conference Live on July 22; Fox Passes

Jul 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Fox Broadcasting, as is its wont, has passed on airing President Obama’s next press conference on Wednesday, July 22, live.

It will air live on ABC, CBS, NBS and Fox’s cable news channels.

The White House moved the press conference back an hour, from 9 pm ET to 8 pm ET. Thus the popular reality programming on ABC and NBC will still air in its entirely (ABC has moved its shows to an hour later to accomodate the press conference).

President Obama revealed the conference on Friday afternoon via Twitter. This next conference marks his fourth since beginning his term in office six months ago.

  1. Don’t you people EVER proofread these articles before posting them?

  2. “Fox Broadcasting, as its want, has passed…”???
    Um, in standard English as taught to ME, the phrase is “as is its wont”.
    Granted, the word “wont” comes from Old English, but it is DEFINITELY the only proper way to express that thought.
    English majors all over the country are groaning at THIS particular goof…

  3. Oh boy…We really should have caught that one.(We’ve now corrected it.) I’ve also resigned our membership in the Professional Organization of English Majors (POEM), though I love its commercials on “A Prairie Home Companion.”
    Actually, I wasn’t an English Major. Wish I had been. Though I did bail out my best friend one time when he was about to turn in a paper in our college English course that contained this phrase in the second paragraph: “For all intensive purposes….” To this day I don’t think he believed me when I told him that that wasn’t the expression he was looking for…
    Thanks for pointing out the error, and we’ll try and do a better job.
