The New York Times welcomes our cybernetic ruler!

Sort of a Big Brother meets the Terminator concept.

//OBAMA SAYS HE DOESN’T WATCH ENOUGH TV, AND THE NEW YORK TIMES TACITLY ADMITS IT CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THE MEMORY HOLE. I’m not sure which is more damning, the following passage…

In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments. Republicans were telling Americans that he is not doing anything when he is doing a lot, he said.

…Or the fact that at least at the moment, it’s since been expunged from the Times’ article, even though it was quoted last night by blogger Tom Maguire, the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, the Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto, and CNN’s Brian Stelter. And it was in the Google cache as of last night as well:

Perhaps seeing Obama’s latest Kinsley-esque gaffe in print caused the administration — or worse, the Times, without being prompted — to have a painful flashback to Obama’s callous choice of words that America could “absorb” another terrorist attack, as quoted by Bob Woodward in 2010.//
