Obama's Ploy to Bypass the Media

. Thursday, March 26

The Natural State Hawg is now a prophet! He left a comment on my last post that said, "Just imagine this -- let's say the only sources for "news" were official ones. Yes, the government would tells us what was what and corporations would issue press release to keep us all informed." Well, Hawg, that sounds absolutely communistic to me, and not at all the way the US has operated since its inception.

Yet, that is exactly the way Obama is taking the White House now. He has decided that the power of the Internet is there for the taking, especially since it worked so well for him to win the nomination and the presidency. Taking it further, and to bypass the checks and balances of the news media, he has decided to use the White House web site to "deliver his message."

"The president just thinks it's another opportunity to talk directly with the American people about the challenges that we have, the choices and the decisions that we're making, and the path that we're taking to get us back to prosperous days," press secretary Robert Gibbs said.


The White House web site provides a list of questions Obama is comfortable in answering, and asks that site visitors choose from that list the questions they want answered. The point is to bypass the negative and critical questions posed by reporters! Cashing in on yet another Hollywood contrivance, the whole sherade is likened to American Idol.

So far, 70,000 people have voted on the darling little questions they want answers to. Thankfully, that's not much in the grand scheme of things, but it is still a major threat to our way of life.

In fact, it's a much larger threat than anything or anyone else on Earth is to America, the land of the free and home of the brave.

This is going too far!

Why, Theresa. I think this is the first time I've read the word bull$hit on your blog! ;)

Doesn't surprise me, but I don't know why he bothers; the MSM won't publish anything that shows him in a negative light, anyway.

Um, I hole back a lot, Pam. LOL

I caught a few headlines that seemed to negate Obama's strategy to end the depression, and there does seem to be more and more articles covering the Republican stance against too. This is a good thing because it's a hopelessly stacked Congress in favor of Obama. It should be illegal, no matter who is the president.
