Obama ‘The Great Successor’ and his obedient media

In the Ironic coincidence file comes this: On the same day that "The Great Successor" Kim Jong-eun took power in North Korea from his father Kim Jong-il, President Obama gathered his most loyal media subjects to the White House for coffee and strategy. (They will protest the "strategy" word in that sentence, but you know it’s the right word.)

You can find the "all-star" list of progressive media types here, ranging from the NYTimes Frank Bruni, Faiz Shakir and Rachel Maddow. People should be forewarned that anyone who attended that meeting ought never be fully believed when it comes to accurate reporting and fair commentary on Obama’s quest to be the "Great Successor" to himself in 2012.

It must have been quite the meeting with those shameless media homers.

I imagine it went something like the meeting Kim Jong-eun had with his media when he took over in North Korea.

"You will, of course, write only positive stories about me and negative stories about enemies of the state."

"Yes, Great Successor, yes!"
