All three publications published a story of President Obama appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" at the NBC Studios. They all mentioned how the President was stunned when he learned of the bonuses that bailed-out insurance giant AIG was paying its employees.
Besides that, Los Angeles times wrote President Obama expressed occasional frustration with life inside the presidential bubble, and giving his pick for the NCAA basketball tournament. President Obama appeared on the show to reach a different kind of audience than he normally commands, according to the White House. He mixed serious policy discussion with details about his life as president.
The New York Times addressed the criticism that the President should be spending his time fixing the economy and not going on late-night television. The newspaper wrote his appearance on the show has also been an opportunity for Mr. Obama to communicate directly with supporters and, indeed to get some love back, away from Washington.
The Washington Post mentioned about the White House bowling alley. President Obama said, bragging that he rolled a 129-point game ("Like the Special Olympics or something," he said) which lead to a controversy.
