    Default Obama: FOX has a "destrucive" View

    Obama: FOX has a "destructive" View

    Obama: Fox has a 'destructive' view - Yahoo! News

    "President Obama tells Rolling Stone in an interview that Fox News has a political perspective that is “destructive” to the country.

    Here’s the full quote:

    “The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition. It is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It's a point of view that I disagree with. It's a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it's been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it's that Fox is very successful.” (See: Insider likely to replace Rahm)

    Here's the very end of the interview with the magazine:

    "[Signaled by his aides, the president brings the interview to a close and leaves the Oval Office. A moment later, however, he returns to the office and says that he has one more thing to add. He speaks with intensity and passion, repeatedly stabbing the air with his finger.] (See: Biden to Dems: 'Stop whining')

    "repeatedly stabbing the air with his finger" WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH THAT??

    Types of Advocacy Groups | OpenSecrets

    527 Group — A tax-exempt group organized under section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code to raise money for political activities including voter mobilization efforts, issue advocacy and the like. Currently, the FEC only requires a 527 group to file regular disclosure reports if it is a political party or political action committee (PAC) that engages in either activities expressly advocating the election or defeat of a federal candidate, or in electioneering communications. Otherwise, it must file either with the government of the state in which it is located or the Internal Revenue Service. Many 527s run by special interest groups raise unlimited "soft money," which they use for voter mobilization and certain types of issue advocacy, but not for efforts that expressly advocate the election or defeat of a federal candidate or amount to electioneering communications.

    But the president's objections seem to have less to do with Fox pushing political opinion than it pushing the wrong political opinion.

    The President knows that liberalism is what the country needs. To his mind, Fox impedes that vision. Therefore Fox is "destructive."

    Ah yes, the Golden Age of an Objective Press, when so much liberal dogma went unchallenged by the few reporters privileged enough to have access to any significant segment of the American public. Or, as Drew M. at Ace HQ writes, "when the mainstream media consisted of the 3 networks regurgitating what they read in the liberal NY Times earlier in the day."
    What has them really worried is people are watching in Huge numbers why, because the people share the same views as Fox.

    The people do not share the same views as FOX...only the politically involved...it's all the others who are not involved that you need to worry about should they be incited to get involved...cause they don't think like FOX.

    Really?, then you would have to explain the Rating Numbers. You'll have to explain the people moving to the tea party both Dem and Rep. You'll have to explain the apparent panic in the Dem party in knowing a land slide election is coming in Nov.
