The Hill reports Obama took a break between rounds today to address graduates at Virginia’s Hampton University.
According to The Hill, Obama said “With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, on cable, on talk radio, it can be difficult, at times, to sift through it all; to know what to believe; to figure out who’s telling the truth and who’s not,” Obama said. “Let’s face it, even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I’ve had some experience with that myself. Fortunately, you’ll be well positioned to navigate this terrain.”
That requires some translation. What Obama meant is that the State Run Media is rapidly losing ground as information technology progresses. As Seneca observed, “no lie dies of old age.” That was true in ancient Rome, and the faster information travels the shorter a lies lifespan becomes. So the truthless media is no longer adequate to propagandize the people.
People are tuning out the Washington Post – and tuning in internet news sources such as Germany’s thelocal.de, The Examiner, Gateway Pundit, Lucianne, and other center oriented news sources. And resentment of an Administration that would pay to tell a lie is growing.
Today, our Maximum Leader finds it necessary to criticize the technology that makes it all possible. Tomorrow? Censor the internet.
