The Fox network announced today that it will not air President Barack Obama's primetime news conference this Wendesday at 8pm (ET), and will air the regularly scheduled drama Lie to Me instead. It is the first time a major broadcast network has declined Obama's request to break into the primetime broadcasting schedule. Lie to Me viewers will see an on-screen graphic informing them that sister cable networks Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network will air Obama's press conference in its entirety. (HT to EW.com)

I wonder why this doesn't happen more. . .
It wouldn't have mattered since I watch Top Model with Lori. I always hate it when shows are preempted for news conference that are covered on CNN or FOX News
