Chuck Todd: Obama ‘Hates’ ‘Internet Media and Social Media’

NBC’s Chuck Todd told an inconvenient truth about Barack Obama on Sunday’s Meet the Press.

CHUCK TODD: What I wonder how many people realized at the end [of Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner] when he did his, you know, there’s always this part at the end where they get serious for a minute. And it’s usually the part where presidents say, “You know, I think the press has a good job to do and I understand what they have to do.” He didn’t say that. He wasn’t very complimentary of the press. You know, we all can do better.

It did seem, I thought his pot shots joke wise and then the serious stuff about the internet, the rise of the internet media and social media and all that stuff – he hates it. Okay? He hates this part of the media. He really thinks that the sort of the buzzification – this isn’t just about Buzzfeed or Politico and all this stuff – he thinks that sort of coverage of political media has hurt political discourse. He hates it. And I think he was trying to make that clear last night.

Todd was likely quite correct, but chose not to disclose why Obama hates new media. It’s because most of it isn’t in the tank for this President and can’t be controlled by him.

That’s obviously not true of folks such as Todd and his colleagues in the old media who echo the current White House resident’s talking points, mercilessly attack his opponents, and cover for his missteps.

It’s therefore no wonder the President hates “the rise of the internet media and social media,” and although Todd is very active on Twitter, one thinks he also hates this rise because it’s making him and his colleagues less relevant.

There are a lot of ways to say it:

“What goes around, comes around.”

“Live by the sword, die by the sword.”

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

“Karma’s a bitch.”

But they all mean the same thing.

Not that many years ago a guy name Dubya was POTUS and the media were his lapdogs. People on the left weren’t happy with the media chokehold on information and the blogosphere was born. Left Blogistan was a place you could go for stories the major media wouldn’t touch.

Then this media whiz came along and saw the potential to manipulate this new “social media”. That guy is David Axelrod. He packaged up an empty suit with a blank resume and with a $100 million in seed money from Wall Street he turned a nobody into The Lightbringer.

Now the media are lapdogs for The Lightbringer and the right blogosphere (aka: Wingnuttia) is the place to go for stories the major (Lamestream) media won’t touch. And the biggest story they won’t touch?

The clothes have no emperor.

    Wow…his narcissism knows no bounds. He “hates” it. He didn’t hate it when the vile progs were using it to browbeat anyone who disagreed and beating the bushes for funds to cover up for the real source of his backing.

    I love that he can’t control natural forces (beside the rising of the tides). It must infuriate him.

    ChuckyT got in trouble on Twitter for making fun of the way GWB pronounces some words. It started a tirade of Obama’s mistakes, like corpseman. Heh, fun.

    it seems like most of new media is in the tank for obama also. for example, i can’t think of an entertainment blog that isn’t solidly pro obama. that’s tons of free promotion to low info voters. anyway, i feel like the left wing is still winning the internet overall.

      There are a lot of “blogs” out there that are run by the major media. I don’t consider that to be blogging. They are just media whores online.

      (My apologies to the real whores out there who work hard for their money)

      A net win isn’t good enough for Obama. If it wasn’t for social media, Obama would have won re-election by a larger percentage of the vote than he did the first time — he’s the first POTUS to ever “win” reelection by LESS than he won the first time. If the old school media still had full control in 2012 Obama would have out done Reagan’s re-election easily snagging 60+% of the vote for a true landslide unlike the 52% that he got and wins of many states by less than 100,000 votes that everyone is pretending is a landslide.

    What is new with this? He hates everything except money or swag for him. He says he hates “new” media but he hates all media even when they are kissing his posterior. The morons at the dinner are just too dim to realize it.

    Do Belgians think this is cool? Just wondering.

    Archbishop prays while topless gay activists shout curses and douse him with water
    BRUSSELS, April 23, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In an astonshing display of gentleness in the face of a vile attack, the head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard, remained calmly seated with eyes closed in prayer Tuesday as four topless women attacked him with shouts and curses and doused him with water.

    It’s not the first time the bishop has been attacked for standing up for the Church’s teachings on homosexuality and expressing his concern for those who live the homosexual lifestyle.

    The incident took place at the ULB University in Brussels where the archbishop was participating in a debate on blasphemy laws.

    The four women, representing the pro-abortion and homosexual group FEMEN, took to the stage where they disrobed to reveal black-painted slogans on their bare chests and backs, such as ‘my body my rules,’ and ‘anus dei is coming.’ They also held signs reading ‘stop homophobia’. The women doused the archbishop with water from bottles formed in the image of the Virgin Mary.

    I wonder if they protest Imams in the same way
