Barack Obama delivered one gaffe after another in his August 6
interview with Jay Leno, but the networks that usually mock every
mistake or slip of the tongue made by Republicans ignored the
President's verbal mishaps.
ABC's Good Morning America, CBS's This Morning and NBC's Today
show, on Wednesday morning, all bypassed the chance to criticize Obama
for: downplaying the threat of terrorism; falsely claiming Vladimir
Putin once ran the KGB; placing the Atlantic coast cities of Savannah,
Charleston and Jacksonville on the Gulf of Mexico; confusing the Winter
Olympics with the Summer Olympics. (video after the jump)
When it was announced a week ago that Barack Obama would be appearing on NBC's Tonight Show Tuesday, NewsBusters asked
if he would be interviewed by the tough Jay Leno who's been hard on the
President for the past year, or the "willing accomplice" that tossed him nothing but softballs when he appeared on the show in 2011.
Sadly, Obama once again faced the willing accomplice.
