Obama Trumps Media with Images

Jul 25, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Some reporters have asked Sen. Barack Obama tough policy questions during his tour of the Middle East, but viewers are getting the story Obama wants to tell through the images being broadcast into American livings rooms, the Washington Post reports. “Though Obamapalooza was not quite the lovefest that some expected, news outlets provided a spotlight so bright that their own people were left in the shadows,” says Post media reporter Howie Kurtz. “Obama has controlled the message — and, more important, the pictures — during his exhaustively chronicled trek across the Middle East and Europe. Obama meeting the troops, meeting the generals, meeting prime ministers and kings, drawing a huge crowd in Berlin yesterday — the images trump whatever journalists write and say.”


  1. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  2. Thanks.
