POTUS peruses paper


President Obama reads a newspaper in this uncredited photo at the Huffington Post.

I’m hoping that this is a file photo from waaaay back in the campaign because it’s obvious that he’s sitting in coach (note the three across configuration in front of him). I’m thinking that POTUS does not have to plant his kiester in a narrow seat on any configuration of Air Force One.

I suspect that the Internet access on Air Force One is plenty fast enough, but I wonder if Obama prefers to catch up with the dead-tree or the webbified version or the news. A possible hint; the photo accompanies a story from The Hill wherein POTUS says that he may be open to a newspaper bailout and:

“I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding,” he said.
