    Barack Obama’s official photographer has released a new book of pictures and the co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Monday, unsurprisingly, went nuts for it. Norah O’Donnell deemed it “beautiful.” Charlie Rose hailed the “fantastic” cover photo of the ex-President. This comes only a few weeks of a photo book on Michelle Obama. ABC deemed that “picture perfect.” Regarding the new book by Pete Souza, Obama: An Intimate Portrait, O’Donnell enthused, “It's a beautiful book. It’s really well done.... You were a constant presence and chronicler of history.” Rose held up the book’s cover and hailed: This is as good...

    ABC news journalist and Barack Obama fangirl Robin Roberts on Monday’s Nightline gushed over a new book of pictures of the Obamas. Co-host Dan Harris deemed the collection of images “picture perfect.” Talking to former White House photographer Amanda Lucidon, Roberts fawned over a picture of the couple snuggling close to each other: “Didn't the President tweet this photo for Valentine's Day?” Harris hyped, “And picture perfect. The White House staff photographer getting candid about her years following First Lady Michelle Obama. The story behind this famous image.” In contrast, when Roberts interviewed Laura Bush in 2007, she wondered if...

    Former White House photographer Pete Souza has mastered the "show, not tell" technique in outlining the stark contrasts between former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. Through his photos and their accompanying captions, Souza has taken a number of thinly veiled shots at the Trump administration.

    Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway has come under fire after a picture of her casually kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office was widely shared on social media. In an image captured by an AFP photographer, Conway appears on the couch with her shoes on as Trump poses for a photo with leaders of historically black colleges and universities. Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens was among those taking aim at Conway, suggesting that aides under previous administrations would have elicited even greater outcry. "If Rice or Jarrett had sat like this in...

    President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton played golf together on Saturday ahead of an evening birthday celebration for a mutual friend - the Washington power broker Vernon Jordan. Jordan, who is turning 80, and former US Trade Representative Ron Kirk rounded out the golf foursome at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard. Obama has spent much of the past week on the golf course as he vacations with his family on the Massachusetts island.

    Apparent fingernails mismatch reveals Barack Obama airport ‘family photos’ are likely digital creations A 1776 Channel investigation has concluded that the airport family gathering portrayed in these images of Barack Obama Sr.’s Honolulu arrival or departure likely never happened. Both airport images appear to have been manufactured, perhaps to propel the official narrative of Barack Obama’s family history as told in his memoir “Dreams from My Father.” Barack Obama Sr. is wearing the same suit and tie in both images, yet has completely different looking left ‘hands’.

  • What the Unearthed 1995 Video Tells Us about Obama

    American Thinker ^ | April 16, 2015 | Jack Cashill
    A professionally shot video of Barack Obama from 1995 has recently surfaced. Shot at the Cambridge, Mass. Public Library, the video captures a skinny, youthful Obama promoting his then newly released memoir, Dreams from My Father. In this hour-long presentation, Obama openly talks about his relationship with his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist and pornographer. Perhaps more importantly, Obama gives us a much clearer picture of who he was in 1995, on the cusp of his political career, than we had seen before. Some observations: The Obama of 1995 was not a very good speaker. He had a halting...

    Here is a photo taken yesterday of Barack Obama giving Vicky Kennedy, wife of the late Senator Edward Kennedy, a warm, heart-felt hug at the dedication of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute yesterday. But where is his wedding ring? On March 12 the first couple took separate planes to Burbank where each appeared in a show: he on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Michelle looked radiant cavorting with Ellen. Barack and Jimmy were clearly yucking it up and having a high old time. In these photos, Barack does not look detached and Michelle does not look...

    The #Millennial-friendly website BuzzFeed has taken over for Zach Galifianakis as the White House's preferred video venue for encouraging young people to sign up for health insurance. You remember the Galifianakis video, of course; Obama's self-deprecating appearance on the fake interview show last year was credited with a big boost in traffic (however short-lived) to Healthcare.gov.

    SNIP The official photographs the White House hands out are but visual news releases. Taken by government employees (mostly former photojournalists), they are well composed, compelling and even intimate glimpses of presidential life. They also show the president in the best possible light, as you’d expect from an administration highly conscious of the power of the image at a time of instant sharing of photos and videos. By no stretch of the imagination are these images journalism. Rather, they propagate an idealized portrayal of events on Pennsylvania Avenue. If you take this practice to its logical conclusion, why have news...

    Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House’s refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers.These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon.The AP has only been permitted to photograph the president in the Oval Office on two occasions. Both were during his first term. All other pictures of Obama in his office were taken by White House photographers and distributed to the press.Previous administrations were less strict about photos, undermining Obama’s frequent claim that he strives...

    On Monday, the Obama White House reportedly held a moment of silence for the victims of last week’s Boston terror attack. For whatever reason, however, the press was barred and the White House released this photo of the president looking at his shoes paying his respects: Over at White House Dossier, Keith Koffler notes that this is another in a series of carefully crafted images released from the White House designed to craft Obama’s image in the wake of the terrorist attack: Presidents rarely engage in this type of private symbolism, which has regal sense to it – the leader...

    Heavy and grey is the head that wears the crown - a lesson that President Obama and many of his predecessors have learned the hard way. When Mr Obama takes the oath of office next Monday marking the beginning of his second term, it will not be the same smooth-cheeked, black-haired man who first joined the exclusive club of leaders of the free world in 2008. Comparing pictures of the 51-year-old commander-in-chief from four years to those taken more recently reveals a startling yet obvious truth: standing at the helm of the U.S. government takes a heavy physical toll.
