    I think protocols vary from one media outlet to another, but I don't think any of them refer to a president as "President __" in every instance.  One common convention is to use the title "President" for the first instance, and then "Mr. ___" thereafter.  And I do remember Republicans whining about stories that used "Mr. Bush" instead of "President Bush".  
    I'd want to see proof that they're treating Obama differently before I'd get too upset about this.
