Is it proper protocol for the media to call President Obama Mr. Obama and not President Obama?

Using the title of President instead of Mr. is a sign of respect for the office of the Presidency of the United States and should be used when addressing or speaking of the President. At times, however, it would be appropriate to call him "Mr. President". All citizens should honor the office of President and give due respect. You do not have to agree with someone to show them the respect of their position. If someone is the President of the United States and especially if you are a citizen of the United States, then it follows that you should show respect and address him as President, for example: President Obama - not Mr. Obama.
