Jon Stewart opened the next segment of the show by asking POTUS about the media. “You love em. They love you.
Are we focused on the wrong things? Are we demanding too much of you, too much of government? Are we inflammatory?"
POTUS said that "the media are a buncj of different medias. Some get on my nerves more than others.” But he added that "what I’m most concerned about is not that it’s unfair or too tough on government …but that it gets distracted by shiny objects and doesn’t always focus on the big tough choices and decisions.”
POTUS said "it’s tough for folks to do an hour-long special on urban Armerca. …tough to get everyone focused the same way.” He said "we then operate in sound bites.”
