Media Roundup: Obama at Commencement

Obama’s appearance at commencement was clearly big news. The press was everywhere – even on top of Olin! [Edit by Lauraalyse]: This wasn’t the press. This was the secret service w/ snipers.


Here’s notable coverage/analysis from some major news sources:

Associated Press: Obama urges Wesleyan grads to enter public service
Los Angeles Times: Obama Speaks at Wesleyan Commencement
Boston Globe: Obama treated as rock star at Wes commencement
NYTimes: Obama Stands in for Kennedy at Wesleyan
ABC News: Obama Replaces Ted Kennedy

    That wasn’t press, those men were secret service/police/snipers…they had binoculars and guns. I doubt the press had guns. They also had uniforms that said police on them. I don’t think the press is masquerading as police officers. That would just be trying too hard/asking to be shot by the snipers that were on top of Olin and the Zelnick Pavilion.
