White House video blog offers an inside view (Goebbels lives)

You didn't see this on CNN or Fox News or NBC: President Obama awkwardly introducing Chile's president, Sebastián Piñera, to the Netherlands' prime minister, Jan Peter Balkenende, at the recent nuclear security summit. "You know, uh, you've met Jan?" the president says tentatively as the other world leaders stand aside like shy kids at a dance.
Or this: Obama, playfully doing his best impression of Muhammad Ali, throwing mock punches into the midsection of a costumed Easter Bunny following the White House Easter Egg Roll.
You didn't see it on the networks because the behind-the-scenes video was only available on "West Wing Week," the Obama administration's new video blog. The six- to seven-minute compilations, which appear each week on the White House's Web site (http://www.whitehouse.gov) and on such video-sharing sites as YouTube, offer what a narrator on each segment calls "your guide to everything that's happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."

You have to admit that their propaganda machine is impressive, perhaps without equal in the modern era. Leni Riefenstahl would have felt very at home in this administration.
The leftist media is enthralled by their masters.

I watched this film from Netflix this week. Wow! It really is a movie about the Obama spin machine.

“..their propaganda machine is impressive,..”
my thoughts, as well!! I was thinking though, who in the modern era has found it necessary to implement impressive propaganda machines to sell themselves and their ideas??
The first one that always comes to mind is Hitler.

"...throwing mock punches into the midsection of a costumed Easter Bunny following the White House Easter Egg"
Ewww. Who would even THINK of doing such a thing? That is the bizarre behavior so typical of this unpresidential cretin. Seems like a symbolic knock-out blow to Christianity, but perhaps I'm reading too much into this. Wonder what he would have done if it were a costumed Mohammad.
The White House's media management practices have drawn quiet criticism from journalists in the past few weeks.
Quiet criticism from journalists? Why quiet? Why are they so timid?

'I was thinking though, who in the modern era has found it necessary to implement impressive propaganda machines to sell themselves and their ideas??"
This guy doesn't do too badly himself, with pictures in every classroom, statues on every corner and no criticism allowed, at all. But, it's early in Obama tenure, give him some time.
Very professionally done. It’s what they do. They’re communicators.
Of course, what they’re communicating is bullshit!
