President Obama Targets Fox News Channel in New Interview
In speaking to The New Republic about the issues facing America, President Obama called out Fox News Channel. He said, “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”
Peter Johnson, Jr. reminds us that this was not the first time the president has specifically referenced Fox News Channel, arguing that Obama has morphed into a “media commentator.”
“He’s saying this is the most pernicious influence in the country. Not unemployment, debt, deficit, or terror, but Fox news, Rush Limbaugh, conservative media, centrist media – watch out for them,” Johnson said.
