WASHINGTON (WCCO) — WCCO-TV had the rare opportunity Tuesday to meet with President Barack Obama and take a behind-the-scenes tour of the White House.

WCCO’s Amelia Santaniello asked Obama about the economy and at what point does it become his fault and not his predecessor’s.

Watch Santaniello’s exclusive interview with the President, which you’ll see only on WCCO.

    Don Shelby should have come out of retirement to do the interview. He’s a legend in his own mind……

    More quid-pro-quo…hey Mr. President, we will give positive spin to all news about you if you let us tour the white house and have our picture taken. This is not news. There is no scope. Amelia is not, but not much of a reporter.

  3. Forget watching it says:

    I wonder…..was she searched as thoroughly as the 5 or 6 years olds were by the TSA in our nation’s airports before she saw the president??? I would have liked to seen the VIDEO of that ‘security search’. LOL.

    the nine stations invited were probably from states that went Republican last year from a traditional Democratic state.

    We the people are NO LONGER brain washed by the “drive by media”!. We have other means to educate ourselves!
