T M I?

Our President doesn't seem to be enjoying his promise of transparency, after all. Although in his campaign he promised openness, for awhile he seemed to be skirting the press at several opportunities. Now, he's down right dissing the press. We've been told knowledge is power and this president more than any other has utilized the 24/7 information internet. He raised how many million dollars in his campaign by promising change and transparency and didn't he insist upon and get his way to keep his personal blackberry for personal e-mails, while all other presidents have had every piece of correspondence available to someone else for accountability? And now, of all things, this man who has done nothing but benefit from being the star of the media for more than three years, the hope of political blogs for more than three years and actually pre-empted the World Series, doesn't think blogs, cableTV, and constant access to news information is good for us. Well, I saw this one coming with the digital TV signals last year. Don't be surprised when we discover our information is filtered. But then, if we keep getting all these news item crumbs and enough negative press about someone we don't like, will we know if our information is filtered? What have we already missed while then Candidate Obama was making us promises and collecting donations? What do we not hear while Glenn Beck is telling us TPTB want to silence him? It's easy to see Sarah Palin playing the media both ways, but what about the rest of them? What does happen and when do we find out when our President of the FCC decides we have TMI [Too Much Information] and ramp up the filter?
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding . . . a Proverb of Holy Scripture
