ATLANTA, Oct. 15, 2010, 10 a.m. - Raising questions about their objectivity, black journalists and bloggers this week cheered President Obama's apparent impromptu appearance at a White House workshop.

The president, who has assailed 24 hour networks like FOX News, was cheered after he told the bloggers and journalists from The Washington Post-owned Root; NBC-owned The Grio; AOL Black Voices; CBS-owned Black Entertainment Television and  Reach Media-owned Black America Web that most blacks are not watching NBC's "Meet The Press."

Representatives for Essence, Jack & Jill Politics, City Limits, Concrete Loop, and MediaTakeOut were also reported to have been in attendance.

Obama made the comments at the "black online summit" at the White House on Monday.

The Democratic National Committee is reported to be spending $3 million to reach black voters through the black media, after the administration was assailed for its lack of spending by some in the black-owned press in 2008.

Staffers for Redding News Review, which has been selected the top black site for news distribution for three consecutive years, did not attend the summit.
