    Well he hasn't done anything good so he needs to at least portray a good image to keep the approval ratings up.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but there's nothing here that is at all frightening about a media outlet allowing the President (or any other politician for that matter) to talk freely (and for free) about their plans. Actually, I'd love to see more things like this open to candidates of any party (or lack thereof) during the election cycle in order to create a more informed electorate.

    Again, someone please enlighten me as to why I should be worried about this. Thanks in advance.

    You're a Liberal, you don't see a problem with the media as a tool of the government. It's okay, it's genetic I think.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    So every speech that Presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, and so on gave on national TV made the media a tool of the government?

    Are you freaking kidding me? We just spent 8 years with an administration that blatantly used Fox News as a tool to promote their propoganda and ruin those who opposed them. Genetic? If anything it's contagious, and we caught it from you.

    Wow, I didn't think I'd get to ignore somebody so quickly. At least on this board the trolls are very obvious about who they are.

    I don't take issues with speeches. Were Obama giving a speech on Heathcare reform I'd expect ABC and everyone else to cover it during prime time.

    I'm a little more weary when it comes to packaged propaganda type hour long specials featuring the President.

    I'll have to see the program to have an actual opinion on it but if it even remotely plays like an infomercial it'll disgust me.

    I don't see how that's a bad thing, and I would hardly call it propaganda. What I call propaganda are the half-truths and blatant misrepresentation of facts that we see on some "news" outlets on the television and internet.

    If someone gets to explain what their intent is for a particular plan, I don't see how it is propagandistic. I think there needs to be more of this from all sides.

    An informed electorate can only do good things for this country.
