From today’s mediabistro.com Morning Newsfeed:
“Are the media capable of merchandizing the moment, packaging a president-elect for profit?” asks The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz today. “Yes, they are.”
Although Kurtz’ story focuses mainly on newspapers and magazines, there are a few networks preparing special memorabilia about Sen. Barack Obama.
“Perhaps it was the announcement that NBC News is coming out with a DVD titled ‘Yes We Can: The Barack Obama Story.’ Or that ABC and USA Today are rushing out a book on the election,” writes Kurtz.
The NBC DVD, currently available for pre-order in the NBC store, runs four hours and ships on December 15 (just in time for the holidays!).
