Terry Moran

February 20 - Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu we're joined by ABC's Terry Moran.

Fresh off a trip to Arizona covering President Barack Obama, Moran will talk about covering the new adminstration, tweeting from aboard Air Force One and more.

"In some ways Barack Obama is the first president since George Washington to be taking a step down into the oval office," he said. "From visionary leader of a giant movement, now he's got an executive position that he has to perform in, in a way, and I think the coverage reflects that."

Before Nightline, Moran spent six years as chief White House correspondent for ABC. "There's something in the White House press corp, which is healthy, where you're judged by your peers to some extend on how tough you can be, how sharp your questions are, how aggressive your coverage is," he said. "That's the standard for success among White House reporters...For many White House reporters, they wake up thinking, 'How do I take a pound of flesh out of the President today?'"
