Ryan to go on post-speech media blitz

GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is sitting down with five media outlets the day after his speech to the Republican National Convention.

The congressman from Wisconsin will tape interviews with ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN on Thursday that will air in the evening, according to the Romney campaign.

Ryan will likely address criticism from President Obama's campaign that he used "falsehoods" in his convention speech. The Romney campaign has pushed back on charges through aides, but Ryan is expected to directly address the controversy.

The networks will also air Mitt Romney's speech to the convention, his official acceptance of the GOP presidential nomination, on Thursday evening.
