Did you hear? President Obama appeared on The View yesterday. Now people are weighing in on whether the President made the right decision to appear in this type of format. What a hoot – this is just an attempt to discredit his appearance by snooty mainstream media and Rosie O’Donnell worried about their coveted lock on the President’s public appearances.
Mr. Obama does not need to speak to the nation through CNN, FOX, MSNBC or Larry King. Communication is communication at night or during daytime. And there is no denying he is a master. It is not like he showed up at the “Bunny Ranch.” Leaders need to adapt to tools at hand to elucidate their policies and personalities to the American Public. The President has been criticized lately for his demeanor during formal press conferences, so the Administration is getting creative, exploring alternative media sources and trying to gain back some of his likeability. I suggest the naysayers do the same – adapt.
