Face in, face out
17 August 2009
Analysts have warned of overexposing Obama’s image in the media since taking office, but this criticism doesn’t seem to be affecting him, Obama is still on the cover of all magazines and his wife as well.
The last feat was the interview with the boy journalist Damon Weaver, who fielded questions about education and mangos for lunch, last week, in the White House. The result of the interview particularly pleased me and I was surprised he took the time out of his day to do that. The outlook doesn’t look so positive, though.
One big hint that even the media has started thinking twice before having Obama was the arm wrestling last month between the broadcast networks and the President’s Office to carry the press conference about his health-care overhaul. The White House rescheduled the meeting for one (less-watched) hour earlier because NBC would air an interview with Susan Boyle.
Obama is certainly a man down to earth, in my opinion. I just wonder if he still needs to prove that.
