Of course, if you're ignorant, you're easier to manipulate

Speaking at Hampton University in Virginia, the president raised alarms when he said "information becomes a distraction, a diversion" that is putting "pressure on our country and on our democracy."

The president suggested less is more when it comes to absorbing news content and urged graduates to take a skeptical eye toward news from blogs, cable television and radio as well as modern gadgets like iPods and PlayStations.

We couldn't have you getting your news from sources we find difficult to influence, now could we?

This of course goes to the statement, keep us stupid, this way the population will not know any better.
