  • The biggest threat to media today

>> President Obama attended the National Prayer Breakfast this morning, a networking event for D.C,'s who's who, sponsored by the organization "the Family." Groups know as "the Family" can either be: New Jersey mafioso, Messianic cults, or a combination. Out of the two, I almost hope it's the mafia. (the New York Times)

>> At the breakfast, Obama went on to tell those there including "the Family," which may have ties to those in Uganda trying to pass laws making homosexuality punishable by death, that "We may disagree about gay marriage, but surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians." We disagree about one thing but agree on one vague thing. How powerful. (BBC News)

>> The White House announced it will not have a regular Q&A session between the President and Congress like previously suggested. Damn--that had the potential of being even more entertaining than "Teen Mom." (Huffington Post)

>> Afghan authorities, along with NATO, are preparing for an assault on a Taliban enclave. We'll see how this whole "cooperation" thing goes. (Reuters)

>> And finally: Fourteen percent of teens say they blog, down from 28% in 2006. Yay--the media is saved! (Pew Center)
