Video: Obama's media offensive

Barack Obama launched media campaign to sell his policies.

    Peace in the Middle East will be just one of several pressing issues for Barack Obama in this week.

    The US president will take centre stage with other world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly and the G20 summit in the US state of Pennsylvania.

    He is also trying to push through a number of domestic policies and has launched an unprecedented media offensive in a bid to get his messages across to the American public.
