Obama's Media Machine: State Run Media 2.0?

I wonder who is paying for the Obama propaganda? But this is funny --- Oops the Stae run media sees a competition in getting the lates Obama press releases our to the people. Hah, it always happens when the dictator becomes unhappy with the standard delivery services, and needs to do more.

As the 2012 presidential campaign kicks into gear, President Obama's White House media operation is demonstrating an unprecedented ability to broadcast its message through social media and the Internet, at times doing an end-run around the traditional press.

The White House Press Office now not only produces a website, blog, YouTube channel, Flickr photo stream, and Facebook and Twitter profiles, but also a mix of daily video programming, including live coverage of the president's appearances and news-like shows that highlight his accomplishments.

"Advise the Adviser: Your Direct Line to the White House," the administration's latest online program launched last week, encourages viewers to offer "advice, opinions and feedback on important issues" and promises a response from a senior administration official in return.

"We're striving to not just have a passive website where people can read about what's happening but create a method of interaction and feedback," said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.
The media is always the first target of the dictators, can't be trusted.

Do they think anybody is actually stupid enough to lock onto the Obama media for anything except propaganda?
