I read this very interesting assesment of Obama and the press in of all places Vanity Fair from Michael Wolf…
They have been handed a most remarkable historical moment—in which they get to remake the media in their own image. They have the power and they are the subject. These people in this White House are in greater control of the media than any administration before them.
You have to look at what is happening in the media today…the entire industry is being reshaped right before our eyes…Wolfe correctly notes that with virtually all other traditional press either failing or in limbo, the celebrity press is on the rise…makes you wonder if we are seeing the beginning of end of serious journalism in the mainstream media.
The White House definitely knows what it is doing…but thank rOD for Helen Thomas.
