Who said it; Goebbels or Obama?

Out of these two;
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi propaganda minister / Barack Obama, US President

Who said the following:

"It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion."-

"Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose."

“Meanwhile, you’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments,... information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than a means of emancipation. All of this is not only putting new pressures on you; it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy.”

Do we have access to too much information and news? What road is Barrack trying to take our young ones down???
