Obama turns to Web to bypass news media

Very wise, especially considering the ongoing deterioration and commercialization in the Fourth Estate (by that I mean traditional press/journalism)

Call it Round Two of the news conference, with a big Internet twist.

President Barack Obama took questions from the White House press corps on Tuesday in a prime-time, East Room session that represented the most formal and time-honored of president-and-reporter interactions. On Thursday, he is taking to that same room for another public grilling — this time by regular folks armed with questions submitted via the Internet and in person, as part of a political strategy to engage Americans directly.
