Newsweek's Howard Fineman thinks Obama should stay off TV and stop communicating directly with the nation during this time of economic crisis:

Three weeks into his presidency, Obama already seems overexposed in the capital —and that was before a prime-time press conference scheduled for this week.

Got it? Less than one month into the new presidency Fineman's already tired of seeing Obama on TV and thinks he should go away.

BTW, Good luck trying to find that kind of casual contempt for the new president Bush from Newsweek writers back in February of 2001. You won't find it, because it didn't exist. But the press has already shown it holds Obama, the new POTUS, in no special regard.
