President Obama Monday suggested conservative media prevent Americans from having “a healthy debate.”
“Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward,” Obama said during an appearance in Chicago.
Conservative media arose because the only thing you could find in much of the mainstream media was liberal bias. That, for Obama, was neutrality and healthy debate. Now that conservatives have platforms to make their arguments, he doesn’t like it much.
