Obama Attacks Fox News (Again)

President Obama is Annoyed that One News Outlet is Still Doing Its Job....

You just can't be loved and worshiped by everybody, but if you're President Barack Obama and it concerns the media, you can come awfully darn close.

In an interview on CNBC's June 16 "Closing Bell" with correspondent John Harwood, Obama mused on the media coverage he has received to date. Harwood asked the president to respond to the claim that lack of media criticism has allowed him to "hurt" the country.

"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.

Obama is the one person who is responsible for a lot of bad manners and social misbehavior from liberals.

Take for example the whole Letterman/Palin dust up.

During the election Obama got away with calling Palin a pig. The media then fully unloaded on her.

Because of his apparent lack of upbringing and low class, if Obama wasn't black I'd call him white trash.

Wait a minute, maybe isn't he half-white trash?!?
