Media Having Trouble Finding Right Angle On Obamas Double-HomicidePosted: September 22, 2012
The press hasn’t figured out how best to display the gruesome crime-scene photos from the president’s bloody rampage.
WASHINGTON—More than a week after President Barack Obamas cold-blooded killing of a local couple, members of the American news media admitted Tuesday that they were still trying to find the best angle for covering the gruesome crime.
“I know theres a story in there somewhere,” said Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, referring to Obamas home invasion and execution-style slaying of Jeff and Sue Finowicz on Apr. 8. “Right now though, its probably best to just sit back and wait for more information to come in. After all, the only thing we know for sure is that our president senselessly murdered two unsuspecting Americans without emotion or hesitation.”
Added Meacham, “Its not so cut and dried.”
Associated Press reporters investigate any possible gym training regimens the president might have used to get into peak physical condition for the murders.Since the killings took place, reporters across the country have struggled to come up with an appropriate take on the ruthless crime, with some wondering whether it warrants front-page coverage, and others questioning its relevance in a fast-changing media landscape.
“What exactly is the news hook here?” asked Rick Kaplan, executive producer of the CBS Evening News. “Is this an upbeat human-interest story about a day in the life of a bloodthirsty president who likes to kill people? Or is it more of an examination of how Obamas unusual upbringing in Hawaii helped to shape the way he would one day viciously butcher two helpless citizens in their own home?”
“Or maybe the story is just that murder is cool now,” Kaplan continued. “I dont know. There are a million different angles on this one.”
So far, the presidents double-homicide has not been covered by any major news outlets…
