BagNewsSalon: Obama’s First 100 Days

This edition of the BAGnewsSalon examined nine Obama Administration images leading up to the 100-day mark. We hoped to consider various factors, including how the White House frames issues via pictures; what the images say about the character and capacities of Obama and his team; and whether the images evidence a new tone and attitude in the country now.

The BAGnewsSALON is an on-line, real-time examination of news and political images between invited guests andBNNreaders and visitors.
