Submission + - Obama: information becomes a distraction 2

zaphod writes: According to Obama, ...information becomes a distraction... when it comes to iPads, Xbox, etc. (all items he admits not knowing how to use). Basically saying we are getting too much information too quickly and from "unreliable sources". Of course, he's referring to talk radio, blogs and other mediums that tend to disagree with his political views. Is Obama suggesting that we go back to the days where news and information were spoon fed and filtered to us? Granted, there will always be mis-information, but we had that with the before this "distracting information" (right Dan Rather?).

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome. -- Dr. Johnson
