Today, Oscar Joyner represented the Tom Joyner Morning Show on MSNBC’s “Up With Chris Hayes”. In light of this week’s uproar by White House correspondents on the lack of access to the president’s golf outing with Tiger Woods,  Hayes and the panel discussed the relationship between the media and the White House. In the broadcast, Joyner stressed the use of radio, technology and social media in getting the president’s messages out to his base and, ultimately, to the polls during the 2008 and 2012 elections.

“He no longer needs to talk to the White House press corp to talk to a reporter who’s going to talk to somebody else about what he said. He can go on “The View” and talk directly to women. He can go to the Tom Joyner Morning Show or the Rev. Al Sharpton Show or the Yolanda Adams Morning Show and talk directly to voters,” Joyner said about President Obama.

    I often wonder who made thse folks experts> I heard what the man said, why do I need you to interpret what I just heard. The media is basically saying “you are to stupid to understand what anyboy said, so this is what was said’

    After watching Mr. Joyner on Up w Chris I came away appalled by his theory that anyone under 30 doesn’t read a news article anymore.
    There has never been a higher rate of college educated people than right now. To think that a majority of us don’t read and care about real issues is preposterous.

    I thought it reflected really poorly on not only his media company, but perhaps on his own views of his audience that they don’t care about an important travesty such as the President assassinating US citizens via a drone. Perhaps Mr. Joyner can conduct some focus groups to clue himself in, but to make such an assumption of his audience that they are not intellectually curious is pathetic.
