Obama Going On 'Morning Joe'

Posted: Updated:

President Obama is going on MSNBC for the first time in a very long time.

The president will appear on "Morning Joe" on Monday, October 29th, the network announced Friday. He will tape an interview with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in New Hampshire on the Saturday before the chat airs.

It's a definite coup for "Morning Joe," which has been granted a sit-down with the man who, for instance, refused an interview with Chris Matthews just a few months ago.

It has been so long since Obama appeared on the network that president Phil Griffin had started touting it as a defense from accusations that MSNBC is in the tank for the Democrats.
