Obama's 100th day news conference nixed by Fox (updated)

Fox has decided not to carry President Obama's Wednesday, April 29th prime-time news conference, which also marks his 100th day in office.

The network instead will go with its regular lineup of the freshman series Lie to Me and an American Idol performance hour.

ABC, CBS and NBC all have announced they will carry Obama, who's making his fourth appearance in prime-time since becoming president. Fox had carried the previous three appearances, including a pair of Tuesday night outings (on Feb. 24 and March 25th) that bumped Idol's performance show to Wednesday and the show's results hour to Thursday.

Cable's Fox News Channel and Fox Business Channel will carry the president's Wednesday night appearance, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. (central). It also will be available on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and Univision. PBS announced Tuesday afternoon that it, too, will cover Obama's news conference live.
