Media To Obama: Were You Scared?

It’s a slow week in Newsville, but not so slow that the media can’t try (try!!!) to shake things up a bit. When Barack Obama’s plane had to make an emergency landing yesterday, the media were there to ask the one question that was on its collective mind: “How can I make a story out of this?”

See if you can guess what angle this one reporter was going for with her story. We’ll give you a clue. She asked asked Obama four questions. Here were three of them:

Were you frightened?
Were you worried?
You got a little nervous?

Each time, Obama shook his head. Not so much at the question as at the notion that he’d answer such a question. Nice try, though.
