Adjusting perceptions

The Gateway Pundit looks at the hints that President Obama is going to bail out the newspapers. One tell-tale was his quote from Jefferson at a dinner with the press to the effect that in a choice between a country without a government or without newspapers he’d choose one without a government. I think that while Obama may not necessarily bail the newspapers out, he gains a great deal by hinting that he might. This sends the signal to thousands of working journalists that Barack Hussein Obama may one day be their actual boss, in same sense that auto executives are. Dropping the hint is actually free, but the message it sends is priceless.
