At today’s Google+ “fireside hangout” with President Obama, the president was asked to recommend a book that would help opponents understand his politics. Obama immediately responded, “Other than my own, I assume? I don’t want to be pitching my own book!”
Some media outlets were happy to bury that little exchange. The Washington Post simply skipped over the mention of Obama’s book completely, even though it reported about Obama’s other book choices. ABC News didn’t see fit to write up the exchange. CNN.com didn’t cover it either.
If nobody covers Obama’s ego problem, does it make a sound?
