First up, Dylan Byers from Politico complaining about “new media’s” focus on the Obama-Castro handshake and the Obama/Cameron/Helle Thorning-Schmidt funeral selfie:
Congrats, new media, you've taken Mandela's funeral and whittled it down to some baseless assumptions about selfies, side-eyes & handshakes.

I guess Byers’s bosses at Politico don’t share his disdain of selfie coverage:
And next up, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd is in disbelief that Fox News would do an entire segment on the Obama-Castro handshake:
Really? An entire segment on a handshake? Good grief; pandering to an audience
— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) December 10, 2013
Ah, yes. Because MSNBC would never pander to its audience. Ever.
Well, maybe they might pander to the end-the-Cuban-embargo crowd. MSNBC.com headline: Handshake makes history at Mandela memorial, with video of the handshake.
