BARACK ON THE MEDIA

As noted in a previous post, President Obama touched obliquely on racism in his recent commencement speech at Hampton University. He also used the occasion to express his dismay for the “breathtaking change” taking place in today’s media.

“You’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t always rank all that high on the truth meter”

So now we know, Obama has been reading the Huffington Post. Then he spoke another truth when he said,

“Some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction,”

There can be no question about this one. We covered a prime example in Spits and Slurs, Spins and Lies. We said then a lie goes around the world before the truth has had a chance to get its pants on. A couple of months have passed and the truth is still naked. Despite no evidence has come forth to support the claim and there being an abundance of evidence to refute it, the lie will go down in history books as truth.
