The president said he noticed a version of Shepard Fairey’s 2008 “Hope” poster hanging in Clooney’s house. “People don’t realize that the photograph of me is actually me sitting next to George” at an event where Clooney was speaking about Darfur.

“We struck up a friendship,” Obama said. “This is the first time that George Clooney has actually been Photoshopped out of a picture. Never happened before, will never happen again,” he said to laughs, adding that Fairey did another poster of Clooney with the two men. “Why he said at the bottom ‘Dope and hope,’ I don’t know,” he added to more laughter.

The problem is that there’s so little reporting any more …. Somebody will write a story and it will be in 1,800 different outlets from one person’s story,"…"It’ll be false, and you’ll go, ‘It’s not true.’ And they go, ‘We’re not saying that, we’re saying that a London tabloid has said it.’ They’re just reprinting and reprinting things that aren’t necessarily true. I understand the problem with it, I understand why it happens. But it certainly is an issue.
