I'm beginning to suspect...

.........That someone might be a bit of a media whore. You know, it's like an attention whore,but with more social communications. I mean,really:
"In the New York Times alone, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, the number of stories on the Obama administration that have appeared on the front page through mid-August of this year totaled 119,678 column inches. That's 9,973 column feet of Obama coverage on the Times front page alone."

Could'nt that have been spent on more important stories?
Or, how about:
"As of mid-August, Obama submitted to a total of 66 television interviews, dramatically outstripping his two predecessors, according to Martha Joynt Kumar, director of the White House Transition Project at Towson University in Maryland.

During the same period of their own presidencies, President George W. Bush gave 16 television interviews and President Bill Clinton gave just six."

But advertising works I guess.
