ABC’s Barbara Walters talked to Barack Obama for an interview that will air Wednesday night. In a preview on Good Morning America, Obama said that it was “tone deaf” for auto executives to fly to Washington in private jets. He doesn’t think that bank executives should take bonuses while laying off employees and getting taxpayer bailouts.

Obama said that he was in “negotiations” with lawyers and the Secret Service for ways to keep his blackberry while president.
