According to The Hollywood Reporter, executives at the major broadcast networks are becoming increasingly upset at President Obama’s frequent primetime news conferences. The past three preemptions have reportedly cost the networks around $30 million in advertising revenue so far this year. The broadcasters are hoping the White House will begin holding conferences outside of primetime hours, and are planning to use Fox’s refusal to air the April 29 conference as precedent to reject future requests that do not address urgent breaking news.
