Obama has been attacking Fox News for eight years, and in a new interview with Rolling Stone blamed Fox in part for Americans’ rejection of Hillary Clinton — and of Obama’s own policies.
“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in the country,” Obama said.
I know, it’s hard to take the blame for things oneself. I mean, it can’t be that people disagree with Obama, right?
Is it possible the president doesn’t see that Fox is just one boat in a sea of liberal mainstream news? Of course he doesn’t, because liberals don’t recognize their opinions as liberal. Just good, unbiased fact.
Trump as president will launch searing attacks against the media. It concerns me. I don’t think the government should be attacking the press — or any private citizens — even though the press is unfair. I think liberal bias should be fought with more conservative media, which is something that’s been happening. But when Trump attacks journalists, remember that Obama and his minions led the way.
