PRESIDENT 2.0

Obama's Own Ask.com

On Tuesday, President Obama made headlines by skipping over the nation's biggest papers at his post-speech press conference, and today he'll continue to cut out the mainstream media. (Doesn't the man know we're in the middle of a newspaper crisis already?) Having apparently run out of TV channels to grant interviews to this week, Obama will now take questions from WhiteHouse.gov, where he's invited citizens to post their own questions and then vote on the ones he'll answer. As of 3 a.m. this morning, 70,000 questions had been asked. Press secretary Robert Gibbs said, "The president just thinks it's another opportunity to talk directly with the American people about the challenges we have." But can WhiteHouse.gov really compete with Lolcatz?
