Obama obsessed with Fox News

Barack Obama is obsessed with Fox News. Never before has a president bashed a network and radio personalities like Obama has, going after Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity by name.

Through The Fox Nation we find the transcript of Obama's interview on Tuesday in which he bashed Fox News:
When you and I spoke in January, you said, I observed that you haven’t gotten much bad press,” Harwood said. “You said, ‘It’s coming.’ Media critics would say not only has it not come, but that you’ve gotten such favorable press either because of bias or because you’re good box office that it’s hurting the country because you’re not sufficiently being held accountable for your policies. Assess that.”

Obama dismissed that assertion and claimed one station was devoted to “attacking” the Obama administration:

“It’s very hard for me to swallow that one,” Obama said. “First of all, I’ve got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration,” he added, chuckling.

“I assume you’re talking about Fox,” Harwood replied.

“Well, that’s a pretty big megaphone and you’d be hard-pressed if you watched the entire day to find a positive story about me on that front,” Obama said.
Check out the video.

This president has complained about the previous administration, conservative talk show hosts, Fox News ... quit yer whining!

A leader does not pass the buck ... a leader does not whine ... a leader does not blame everyone around him ... a leader accepts the responsibility.

Obama is an idol in the eyes of the mainstream media. They have given him a pass resulting in the perception that they work hand-in-hand with him, i.e., the upcoming ABC special pushing universal health care to be broadcast from the White House on June 24.

In the midst of all the adolation, one network doesn't have stars in its eyes ... and that is Fox News. They are performing fair and balanced coverage ... they are doing their journalistic jobs.
