We are splitting hairs here. A lot of people enveloped in the media context are public figures. But my larger point is that this article -- while it recognizes and addresses major problems like increasing student debt and rising tuition -- is intellectually dishonest by blaming the origins of these problems on a single politician. I'm no fan of Obama, but I also prefer truth over distortion. The student loan debacle was unfolding before Obama took office and it will probably continue to worsen after he leaves. By blaming and sliming Obama, this article distracts from the real issues and the needed solutions. I regret that seemingly every major issue today is politicized.
