FILE – In this May 9, 2012, file photo President Barack Obama is seen on a video monitor in the White House briefing room in Washington during an interview with ABC, wherein Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage. During his first term Obama gave 674 interviews, TV, radio, Internet, print, compared to 217 and 191 for former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton respectively. With interviews the president has more power to choose his timing, questioners and format, in hopes of delivering a certain message in a setting that's not always hard-hitting.
