"You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said at Hampton University, Virginia.

Yea, ya’ gott’a watch out for “all kinds of content and…kinds of arguments”.

Anyone who worries about the availability of information is someone to be very leery of. Most especially if that person is our president.

So much for the typical commencement address of ‘go forth and prosper’, ‘help your fellow man’, blah, blah…now we get President Strawman argument, ‘watch out for this, which I just pulled out’a my backside’.

Well who the freak are you? Let me be perfectly clear, we’re bright enough to figure this stuff out on our own. You aren’t the only one who can decipher bad information from good. Go play some more golf or practice your bow.

Part of his campaign strategy was to make full use of the new communications technology to quickly rally his supporters to action against the opposition. I particularly remember an instance when Milt Rosenberg had, as a guest on his radio program, an author who raised serious questions about Obama's link to Bill Ayers and his show was flooded with calls from Obama supporters which effectively canceled out any possibility of intelligent public discourse on the topic. Looks like this strategy didn't have much staying power as something he could control beyond the idealistic excitement of the campaign.
