Can you show me where, in the 1st, it shows you’re allowed to tweet, record or livestream?

No?

Thought not.



It's right next to the word internet.

From the sounds of the article, it didn't sound like Obama's speech was worth reporting on anyway.

I'm sure Obama knew that talking about "diversity" and being a "team player" would be ripe for all kinds of jokes and jabs at the former Hypocrite-in-Chief.


Nothing Barry says is worth listening to.

NDAs protect proprietary or sensitive information.

Or, in the case of Obama, when he wants to be a censoring dick.

Probably something like "Ok guys, the kneeling thing didn't work, we need to ramp it up a notch"

SO how many other NDA's will be attached to an APP to subvert your FREE SPEECH rights as an American? OK privacy during a paid for Semi Private/public event with an NDA fine. but what about after ? your in fear of PUNISHMENT because you talked about it? Does that sound American to you???

Oh my a bigO Bama Secret. So let us keep it secret. Opps the cat is out of the bag

www.washingtontimes.com...

That source and at least a half dozen others announcing the up coming event. Well no longer up coming. So If it was going to be all that secret, why did all of these outlets tell people about it before it happened.

www.si.com...

www.usatoday.com...

Shall I go on? There are many more announcements but I guess you can look them up if you want.

So my question is. If it is sooooo secret whay publisize it so heavily?

Obama gives a speech, the media covers it and people are outraged about him still being in the news.

Obama gives a speech, the media doesn't cover it, and now it's an attack on free speech and subverting the 1st amendment.

I'm starting to see a pattern here.


I hate to burst your bubble there, hoss, but two points constitute a straight line, NOT a pattern.

Surely the people attending the event knew they wouldn't be able to talk about it.

This has nothing to do with free speech.
That's like telling someone to keep a secret is violating their right to free speech.

To me it sounds like attendees essentially agreed to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) when they purchased or were given tickets.

I am very curious about what the content of his speech was, and would be willing to bet that it was political in nature... knowing Obama's political followings that does not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. He seems hell bent on selling out American sovereignty and freedom to the highest bidder

Not even the president anymore and he's still probably raising hell

ATS, you're slipping. Not a single person is going to post this?

For those who don't know, "Game of Zones" is an NBA/Game of Thrones parody. They made this special version specifically for Obama's appearance at the conference.

In more serious news, here are 2 video recaps of Days 1 & 2 of the "2018 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference". This should give you an idea of what this conference is about.



According to another article (HERE):

Obama “will discuss his time in office and the next chapter of his life” while here, according to a conference newsletter that came out when the announcement about the former president’s panel was made last month.

Here is a passage from one of the announcments publisizing the event that I poster earlier.

BOSTON (AP) - Former President Barack Obama will speak at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference on Feb. 23 to discuss his time in office and the next chapter in his life.

The conference announced Friday night on Twitter that Obama, an avid sports fan, would make an appearance.

MIT has held the conference annually since 2007, hosting industry professionals to discuss the role of analytics in sports. This year, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman are scheduled to speak. Also on the list of speakers - retired baseball star Alex Rodriguez, FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver and Los Angeles Clippers owner and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

So he was, according to the conference announcement, he was scheduled to talk about his time in office.
I would bet that there is a strong possibility that the restrictions established by Sloan also apply to the NBA commissioner and the NHL commissioner and former Microsoft CEO and Arod

How is something not being recorded anything to do with free speech? Free speech is about speaking, not recording or broadcasting.


oh c'mon...it's about Obama, so it's automatically bad here on ATS.....of course other presidents have done the same thing, but they have been white
