    White House video blog offers an inside view

    You didn't see it on the networks because the behind-the-scenes video was only available on "West Wing Week," the Obama administration's new video blog. The six- to seven-minute compilations, which appear each week on the White House's Web site (The White House) and on such video-sharing sites as YouTube, offer what a narrator on each segment calls "your guide to everything that's happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."

    Well, not everything, of course. But "West Wing Week" is effectively the White House's video vision of itself and its chief occupant, as it would like to be seen, unfiltered by journalists.

    WaPo in its usual sycophantic adoring coverage of anything 'Barry' even gets the title to their story wrong here. It should read 'White House video blog offers a progaganda view.'

    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.

    Politically, I'd call it a brilliant move. Sort of a rolling campaign ad just telling one side of the story (for any given issue/topic). Rahm and crew are nothing if not savvy party managers.

    But am going to speculate wildly that if Rove and team had tried this same technique in the previous administration......the blow back from the media would have been deafening.

    Well what do you expect? Name me one politician who would makes videos about themselves that weren't favorable. This is just entertainment fluff, like cribs or "behind the scenes" dvd bonus material.

    What is so different than about using contemporary technology (blogs) vs a weekly radio address that as far as I know has been done by every President since FDR's fireside chats?

    Further proof that no matter what Obama does, some one will start a whine thread about it.

    Except I did not defend him. I just laughed at people who would bitch at something like this.

    Who cares what Obama does on the internet? As long as he doesn't invade another country I'm OK with him.
