Obama: Turn Off Your TV And Don’t Read BLOGS

Politico.com: President Obama’s back is against the wall, so he’s getting in touch with his inner Agnew, hitting the neo-nattering nabobs of cable and the Net.

“If we could just — excuse the press — turn off the cameras,” he told Democratic senators at their annual retreat. “Turn off your CNN, your Fox, your MSNBC, your blogs, turn off this echo chamber … where the topic is politics. … We’ve got to get out of the echo chamber. That was a mistake I made last year — not getting out of here [Washington].”

Quickie transcript above …

This was received with considerable enthusiasm, particularly by Sen. Harry Reid, who said that he had already taken the president’s advice.

I have a feeling Harry Reid may have heard, “turn off the lights”.
