There are a lot of things that President Obama has suffered that are actually "beneath the dignity of the office" but talking to ordinary citizens isn't one of them. Fox's Howard Kurtz and his cohort Megyn Kelly were just besides themselves over President Obama's interviews this Thursday with some You Tube "celebrities" as opposed to the Villagers that make up that bastion of uselessness otherwise known as the White House press corps.

From Mediaite: Fox’s Kurtz: Obama YouTube Interview Was ‘Beneath the Dignity of the Office’:

President Obama did an interview earlier today with three very popular YouTube celebrities. The press corps was somewhat flabbergasted by this, given the president’s reticence to engage with them more. Now, considering the three interviewers were all YouTube celebrities, they did actually throw some good questions the president’s way.

But to Fox’s Howard Kurtz, an interview with YouTubers felt “beneath the dignity of the office” of the presidency.

Both he and Megyn Kelly zoned in on GloZell, a YouTube comedian who they found to be funny, but couldn’t fathom why she got to interview the President of the United States.

You want to know what's "beneath the dignity of the office" Howie? President Obama giving Bill O'Reilly an interview. Or putting up with John Boehner doing his best to undermine him on foreign policy and Iranian negotiations by inviting President Bibi to speak before a joint session of Congress.
