Skip to comments.Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of Photojourn-O-lism Is Complete: Selfies!
Posted on 12/14/2013 7:16:24 AM PST by NOBO2012
This is a week The Really Big Brains are anxious to put away in the circular file.
First, amidst allegations that Big Guys most transparent administration ever has consistently provided less access to the press than the Bush (Miss Me Yet?) administration, Jay-Jay initially just yucked it up, hoping the baying wolves would go away.
The truth will set you free. Or as my boss says, What does that mean?
Ultimately though, he was forced into implementing a default tactic he learned at the Alinsky School of Propaganda and Prevarication: blame the victims. He accused the new media for the demise of the old medias traditional press corpse role:
"A lot of this had to do with the fundamental transformations in the media, of which we and other institutions are participants," Carney told reporters. "But we did not create the Internet."
Well thats good.
What the Internet would look like if the Really Big Brains had created it
So for those of you who dont speak journ0list, allow me to translate: we dont really need you guys so much anymore, as we are now running our propaganda and self-serving photo ops through our own social media. Boy, this transformational crap can really swing around fast and bite you in the butt! Dont worry though, JJ quickly smoothed everyones feelings over by telling one of his patented Big White Lies:
I can commit to you that we are working and have been working on expanding access where we can, Carney said. Let me be clear, that is the view from the very top.
News and views from the VERY top
Had he asked, I would have warned him: never-ever underestimate the fury of a woman or a journalist scorned.
Woman Scorned: It Gets Ugly - h/t Gerard
Journ0list scorned: Despite the Great White Washing, Still Ugly. - h/t Twitchy
Without a single word, with nothing more than the insertion of a red ellipse, a scorned member of the new media (the un-dead press-corpse) pointed out JJs mendacity.
Butt that was hardly our worst headache last week. That distinction, of course, belonged to the self-inflicted selfie-scandal. As is often the case with issues of this sort with the Wons, it was a rightwing driven, racist, sexist, overhyped non-issue. Allow me to make my case; first everybody takes selfies!
The Clintons take selfies:
Joey Biden takes selfies:
Lady M and the Wee Wons take selfies:
I know, I know: youre saying butt MOTUS, thats different from taking smiling selfies at a funeral!
Agreed. Butt I have proof that so-called funeral selfies are all the rage. See for yourself:
Yes. It has come to this. Apparently Big Guy and his little friends were just riding a tasteless meme.
Although, at least these young narcissists seem to realize its wrong.
So thats all Im going to say about the Mandela memorial. Period. Because anything more and it would just get weird.
So let me close out todays post with this lesson to be learned from the weeks News Follies: Dont be that Selfie Guy!
For one thing, its addictive, and for another, it makes you look the fool.
Oleg is back in business
And thats all Im going to say about that as well. Period.
