Oprah: Obama Show "Feels Dated"

Oprah Winfrey considered not airing her previously-taped interview with the President and First Lady.

Oprah doesn't just have second thoughts - she Tweets second thoughts.

As news of Osama bin Laden's death swept the country, the talk show host began considering what to do about the interview she taped with President Obama early last week.

"Trying to decide what to do about tomorrow's show with prez that was taped last week. Show will feel dated because we taped last week. Not even a hint of Osama's demise," she wrote on her Twitter page.

Rather than pull the episode, the decision was made to run it uncut with a "previously recorded" disclaimer along the bottom of the screen.

During the interview, the President discussed his recent birth certificate controversy and other topics, although the war on terror was never broached. 

Oprah's march towards her May 25th finale continues.
