Following more than six years of failed domestic policies and embarrassing foreign relations maneuvers, President Obama has found a new target for blame. Even he realizes that he can’t keep blaming former President George W. Bush for all the problems the nation is now facing and so his new target is…drum roll, please…Fox News.
That’s right. The media is to blame. Or, more specifically, Fox News. Failing to take into consideration that approximately 85 percent of mainstream media are liberal – by their own admission – he picks on one of the few news outlets that refuses to toe the line when it comes to sucking up to him and reporting whatever he wants reported in whatever way he wants it presented.
Obama said that if he’s going to be able to change the way people like Representative John Boehner and Senator Mitch McConnell think (good luck with that, by the way), then he’s going to have to change how the media reports on things. Then he singled out Fox News for its biased coverage.
I guess when you have a vast majority of the news media in your back pocket, it must be infuriating to have one popular news outlet willing to tell the truth about you and your failures.
Currently, it’s just talk. Right now he’s only “saying” that Fox News should change the way it reports. But if he decides to start following in the footsteps of other dictators, don’t be surprised to see his people try to enact laws that control how and what the media reports. And if it’s not Obama, it will be the next president from the Democratic Party.
