How Will Rupert Murdoch Justify Not Covering Obama's Address to Congress Next Week?

Fox has made it perfectly clear that it's not going to cover any of Obama's primetime press conferences. Ever. Fox TV (not Fox News) has walked away from that traditional obligation. And if you believe the Village chatter, lots of self-centered execss at the other nets would love to follow Murdoch's lead.

Press conferences are so boring, the suits complain, as they huddle over their primetime entertainment lineups which have lost tens of millions of viewers in recent years.
