[See NewsBusters for more.] As of Saturday, Joe Biden has gone 204 days without giving a sit-down interview to a journalist. What’s even more incredible about this gap is that, when he does them, the President is almost always greeted with softballs. In that way, he’s no different than the last Democratic president, Barack Obama. It was 12 years ago this week, August 29, 2010, that Obama enjoyed some particularly easy questions. NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams gushed to the Democratic president: "I’m hoping to find you in a reflective mood on a cloudy day. We’re the first to speak to you coming off your summer vacation. How does it re-charge you? What do you think about? What do you see? What do you read about? How are you thinking about your job these days?”
