CBS This Morning Gushes at ‘Impressive’ Michelle Obama Working Out (NewsBusters)

On Thursday, CBS This Morning acted as an unofficial spokesperson for First Lady Michelle Obama as they eagerly promoted a video of her working out at the gym. For their part, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today did not cheerlead Mrs. Obama during their broadcasts. 

Co-host Gayle King beamed at how “[t]he Chicago Sun-Times shows First Lady Michelle Obama getting hardcore at the gym. It’s part of her “Gimme Five” campaign which encourages people to be healthy. She tweeted this clip in response to the president's “gimme five” video which shows him doing less intense activities like walking.”
