The President told students at a graduation that with 24/7 news coverage that Information is becoming a distraction. Would you like to go back to the three major networks providing you with 1/2 hour of news a day? Or would you like to have the news more often?

I think information is vital.... But information will turn into a distraction if you only allow it to distract you.... and sometimes information is not conveyed right so be careful.

Information is power, and 0bama and the rest of the liberals do not want us to have too much information. When we are informed, then we tend to call these socialists on the things they do .. or attempt t do. That is why they want to control the news, the internet, and talk radio.. because they don't want us to be aware of the things that they do. They want us ignorant and subservient, not knowledgeable and outspoken.
