(:33) AD 1, Obama's Communications Director Anita Dunn (1/12/09 @ Global Foundation for Democracy and Development, Dominican Republic), "[A] huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media cover what Obama was actually saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it, what the tactic was.  We had a huge premium both on message discipline, on people in the campaign not leaking to reporters, on people in the campaign not discussing our strategy, and also on making the press cover what we were saying."
(:26) AD 2, "One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters.  We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter.  So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it."

(:27) AD 5, "One of the reasons that the web site worked so well was we used opportunities in the traditional media to drive people online to basically say that's where you can get more information, that's where you can get the most updated information.  And that we used speeches, we used appearances, and we used press to basically drive people to our web site."

544-554 – • Advocate (10/19/09) Effigy of Prejean Tops Horror House.  Where are you between anger and passivity on this one?
Chad Michael Morrisette and Mito Aviles decorated the roof of their West Hollywood home for Halloween with nude and bloodied effigies of former Miss California Carrie Prejean and Maggie Gallagher, head of the antigay Institute for Marriage and Public Policy.
"The whole theme is the forces of evil of 2009," Morrisette told the website Curbed LA .
While a butchered Prejean dangles off the side of the building, a nude mannequin with a photo of Gallagher's face dons their roof.
Besides being nude, the word "liar" is scrolled across the stomach of the mannequin representing the head of the organization that opposes same-sex marriage.
"The reason that she is naked is that we are exposing her lies," says Morrisette, who calls Gallagher a hypocrite for statements she made about educating children about gay marriage.
Besides Prejean and Gallagher, the display also features a Mormon missionary tied to a stake and engulfed in flames.
To counteract the evil, the two men included Glinda, the good witch from The Wizard of Oz.
Last year the couple created a stir in the community when they featured an effigy of former governor Sarah Palin in their Halloween display.
According to the pair, there has not been any public outcry against the rooftop decorations.
"Some people have come by, laughed, and taken photos," said Aviles to Curbed LA.
Los Angeles, Calif., Oct 16, 2009 / 03:55 am (CNA)- Delivering an acceptance speech for a GLSEN award, a wealthy homosexual activist has attacked Catholic leaders, saying they are among his movement's "greatest adversaries." He called on his allies to combat "head-on" religious organizations opposed to homosexual causes and to take "active measures" against them.
At its Oct. 9 Respect Awards event in Los Angeles, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) honored David Bohnett, the cable network HBO and screenwriter Shonda Rhimes with its Lifetime Achievement Award. They were awarded for what GLSEN called "their commitment to all America's students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression."
// According to a copy of Bohnett's acceptance speech on the foundation website, the honoree thanked Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa for his introduction and praised a recent New York Times Magazine article about young people "coming out" as homosexuals in middle school.
"This is the welcome, unstoppable, and inevitable result of the positive shift in generational attitudes toward being lesbian or gay, supported by the work that's been done over the last several decades by GLSEN, GLAAD, and countless other groups and activists," he said.
Bohnett then used his acceptance speech to attack religious groups opposed to homosexual political concerns.
"We must treat the causes of intolerance and bullying as well as the symptoms of them," he remarked. "And as we see most often, it is the evangelical and fundamentalist groups that teach homosexuality is a sin, who stand in the way of fairness and equality.
"It's time to combat head-on the religious organizations that are funding the opposition to marriage equality and safe school legislation."
The GLSEN honoree said he favored "the pursuit of spirituality" and "the wisdom and comfort and experience that can be gained through the study and belief in a higher power."
He also said it was important to support religious leaders and institutions that embrace "full equality" for homosexuals and their families.
"Let us make it known, however, that we will challenge those religious leaders and institutions that shamefully and cowardly use the imprimatur of their church and the name of god [sic] and Jesus to promote hatred and bigotry toward lesbians and gay men," Bohnett declared. "Among our greatest adversaries who actively work against us are the leaders of the Catholic, Mormon, and evangelical churches who seek to deny equal protection for us and for our children."
"The bible [sic] is all too often used as a weapon against us, quoted and mis-quoted by those who seek to deny us freedom and equality," he continued, arguing that children taught that the Bible condemns homosexuality may become "school bullies" and later become the adults who vote "to deny marriage equality."
"It's time we raise our children to be independent thinkers and deeply suspicious of bible beating organized religion. We'd be much better off if parents were honest with their children about the hypocrisy of some churches with regard to homosexuality."
// Harry Knox, a leader with the homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign and an appointee to President Barack Obama's advisory council on faith-based partnerships, has called Pope Benedict XVI and Catholic bishops "discredited leaders" and has attacked the Knights of Columbus as an "army of oppression" for their work to preserve the definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
According to the GLSEN website, the group claims a national network of 10,000 "students and allies working to create safer schools." It reports that more than 3,000 student clubs commonly known as "gay-straight alliances" have registered with the organization.
President Barack Obama appointed GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings as director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, the "Safe School Czar."
Jennings, a former teacher, has come under fire for not referring to the police a male student who came to him for advice after being involved in a sexual incident with a man he met in a bathroom. Critics also question his qualifications for the office because of his past drug use and his praise for Harry Hay, a homosexual activist connected with the pedophile group NAMBLA.
