President Barack Obama is scheduled to touch down at Logan this afternoon in time for a fundraiser that Democrats are hoping will raise $2 million. The guest list includes A-listers like Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell and current star Ray Allen.

Not getting the Presidential treatment? The Boston Herald.

While the Beantown broadsheet The Boston Globe will be filing pool reports, the White House told the city's tabloid that its coverage of President Obama's last visit to Boston raised questions about its fairness.

Guest:

  • John Carroll, professor of mass communications, Boston University and blogger for CampaignOutsider.org

This segment aired on May 18, 2011.
