Before taping an appearance on “The View” Monday, Pres. Obama delivered the commencement address at Barnard College in New York City. The president implored the graduates not to lose faith in American institutions — including the media: “Every day you receive a steady stream of sensationalism and scandal.”

“No wonder that faith in our institutions has never been lower, particularly when good news doesn’t get the same kind of ratings as bad news anymore.”
