The Obama campaign leaked the news of this second SNL gig to what seems to be rapidly becoming its favorite media outlet, People Magazine, which scored the first joint interview with Obama and his then-freshly-named running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del. (And only one of two joint interviews the duo have done, period.)
Obama often complains about the media not covering enough substance, and focusing on too much entertainment-related tabloid nonsense.
