The Independent is reporting that the White House rescheduled to 8 p.m. President Obama’s televised press conference on health care because NBC had planned to air an interview with singer Susan Boyle at 9 p.m.

Boyle is a Scottish spinster who placed second in the UK’s TV competition “Britain’s Got Talent.”


Wow, an interview with the loser of a talent show bumps a presidential address on the key issue of the day. There’s a big joke in there — and it’s on us.

It looks like NBC got REALLY close to Obama during its one-day-in-life coverage a few weeks ago. During the president’s recent physical exam, NBC turned its head and coughed.
