Video: President Obama Speaks to Black Journalists on Background

Yesterday President Obama welcomed black journalists and bloggers to the White House for lunch, which was supposed to be half on-background and half off-the-record. The celebrity blog The Young, Black and Fabulous posted a video of part of his remarks anyway.

“Part of what’s so powerful about the Web is that it’s not just a one-way conversation,” President Obama told the group in the video. He added, “We’re very excited about the possibility of our interaction.”
