Washington, Sep.22 (ANI): Barack Obama has become the first US President to appear on five talk shows in one day.

As anchors from CBS, ABC, CNN, NBC and Univision took turns in the hot-seat opposite the President in the West Wing of the White House, Obama didn't bother to vary his statistics, turns of phrase, seating position or even jokes.

Talking to ABC's George Stephanopoulos and then CNN's John King, the President even repeated the same hand movement while saying the same sentence about al-Qaeda.

The interviews were given to the five major networks to try to gain ground in the nationwide debate over healthcare reform.

Each network sent a full crew over to the White House for 15 minutes of the President's time, reports The Times. (ANI)
