P.I.D. Radio 5/16/14: Hashtag Number Sign


michelleobama_hashtagSOMEONE SHOULD have warned First Lady Michelle Obama that appearing in a Twitter photo holding up a #BringBackOurGirls sign was a bad idea. It took about 15 minutes for the picture to be Photoshopped.

Worse, it made the government of the United States look juvenile (again). As former State Department counselor Eliot Cohen wrote, America’s leaders “may be charming, bright and attractive; they may have the best of intentions; but they do not look serious. They act as though Twitter and clenched teeth or a pout could stop invasions or rescue kidnapped children in Nigeria.”

Also: Joe Biden’s son benefits from regime change in Ukraine; new climate scam; NASA mission to Europa; algorithm named to board of directors; threats from MERS and Ebola; and the Department of Agriculture wants submachine guns.
