Who is at blame for this “breaking news” article? The president or ABC News.
The article from ABC News shares that Obama and his wife shared dinner out with friends. The Obama’s were joined by Dr. Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, and lawyer and business executive Vernon Jordan and wife Ann Dibble Jordan at a State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard.
Is the fact that Obama is being quoted as enjoying his vacation “breaking news?”
When the couple left the restaurant at 9:55 pm EST, reporters who were waiting for the Obama outside of the establishment, bombarded him with questions about his stay in Martha’s Vineyard. The president replied, “I’m having a great time.” He also shared that he is, “doing a lot of reading.”
Is it breaking news how Obama and his wife are enjoying their vacation and what the president is reading from his book list? It was also reported where the president purchased his book and what other books were on his list to read, including Jonathan Franzen’s “Freedom,” which is said to not currently out for sale in stores. The president received the advance copy of the book from the book store owner who “gifted” the president with it.
