Obama on “iPods, iPads, Xboxes, and PlayStations”: “Information Becomes a Diversion”

Obama BlackBerryPresident Obama gave a commencement at Virginia’s Hampton University over the weekend, and used part of his speech to criticize, as he’s been doing publicly since his fantastic smack-down of Republican House members, the torrent of incomplete information or downright incorrect information that flows so easily in the modern 24-hour news cycle. He added in what seems at first to be a little dig at gadgetry–but really, he’s not criticizing the hardware or software so much as the content.

“You’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t always rank all that high on the truth meter,” Obama said at Hampton University, Virginia.
