American Networks Securely in the Tank, Obama Now Does Al-Arabiya Interview

Now that he no longer has to worry about the slavish, slobbering American media, Barack Obama is bypassing them in favor of Arab television.

As special envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell heads off to the region to begin work on negotiating a cease fire between Israel and the Palestinians, President Obama has sat for his first formal TV interview with the Arabic cable TV network Al-Arabiya, ABC News has learned.

The interview was taped this evening and is set to air at 11 pm ET, as Mitchell is in the air and on his way to the region.
