Transcript: White House Senior Advisor David Plouffe

On the second point, I think the relationship will change. I think it has been too close, too cozy. As I put it, you know, too much time was spent, understandably, courting, not just whether it was the Murdochs or News International, but also everyone from the BBC or the Guardian newspaper. Politicians are always trying to get across their message and win plaudits from the media.

But I think we spent too much time on that and not enough time on working out, have we got the right regulatory framework to deal with media abuses? And we don't. We need to change that. And that's one of the things that the review will do.

AMANPOUR: All right. Prime Minister, thank you very much for joining us.

CAMERON: Thank you. Pleasure.

AMANPOUR: Thank you.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

AMANPOUR: And you can find more of my interview with Prime Minister Cameron on abcnews.com/thisweek.

And up next, the Sunday funnies.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now, the Sunday funnies.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

COLBERT: Just listen to Obama's speech calling for patience from the Palestinians.

OBAMA: Peace is hard. Peace is hard work. That's part of what makes peace so hard.

COLBERT: Peace is hard, unlike winning the Nobel Peace Prize, which is surprisingly easy.

(LAUGHTER)

FALLON: Yesterday, President Obama put his hand up and accidentally blocked a U.N. member's face during a group photo. If you think that's bad, check out what Biden was doing. Look at that.

(LAUGHTER)

MEYERS: President Obama on Monday defended his new proposed tax rate for millionaires, saying this is not class warfare, it's math, which is unfortunate since America is way better at warfare than math.

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

AMANPOUR: And we'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now, "In Memoriam."

And we remember all of those who died in war this week. The Pentagon released the names of 11 soldiers and Marines killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: That's our program this week. Be sure to watch "World News" with David Muir tonight for all the latest headlines. For all of us here, thank you for watching, and we'll see you next week.
