Obama to write Newsweek cover story

President Barack Obama will write a cover story for Newsweek magazine about Haiti, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal's Russell Adams.

Obama has already pledged $100 million in U.S. aid to the earthquake-ravaged island nation, and when Newsweek editor Jon Meacham asked senior adviser David Axelrod if the president would write about the recovery effort, he said yes.

Already a best-selling author, the piece will be Obama's first major story for a U.S. magazine.

The issue is due to hit newsstands on Monday.
