President Obama Laments
Rush Limbaugh And Fox News’
Influence On Public Debate

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/27/2013 2:30:06 PM

In a soon-to-be-released interview with The New Republic, President Obama reportedly laments the negative influence Fox News and Rush Limbaugh can have on the congressional debate over various pieces of legislation. The president told TNR editor Frank Foer and owner Chris Hughes that “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates.” The media can either help break or uphold partisan gridlock, the president said, adding that “If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest,

Thats a bit one sided isn´t it Mr President? Is it alright for the left´s opinion talkers to spew their bile, but a conservative and a middle of the road news channel cannot.
I think this shows a "I am right and everyone who disagrees is wrong" attitude, sir.

Note Obama´s lack of details as to why these attacks by Rush are not justified. Fox should not be mentioned inthe same breath as Rush.

Obama is out of gas morally, bankrupt financially and morally and maxed out on what he can do mentally, with the media and with spending (like a rock star).

The President says “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates.” Does he even realize what he has admitted here.

This is what we have been screaming all along ... the media does shape the debate, always has shaped the debate while constantly claiming to be impartial. The President has made it clear that he needs the media to shape the debate in his favor for his efforts to prevail. The likes of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, who present a different side to the debate, must be silenced ! Anyone who doesn´t agree with him must be silenced ! Chilling ! And the President has just come out and made that pronouncement. Are the sheep listening?

I have no doubt the king is upset. After all the low info voters are his base. Those of us who actually look for more balanced news are a threat. Remember the truth and facts are not the friends of the kingdom.

Obama wishes for the good old days.

You know, when the king could lift his hand and say, "Off with their heads!"

And his minions would quickly do the deed.

All hail King Obama! May his name be praised and his word become law! (Just practicing for the underground resistance.)

What kind of campaign did this man run?

It certainly wasn´t about detailing all the great things he has personally done for our nation...

No, it was all about running against Fox and Limbaugh. He ran a smear campaign with his willing accomplices in the media.

Where is all the hoopla over the death of Trayvon Martin these days? The media had it on 24/7 for months trying to gin up that it was a racially motivated hate crime.

And believe you me, Obama´s media drained as much as it could trying to create a black vs white story that played well into the hands of the dictator. Once re-elected, it has been put on the shelf.

Limbaugh is public enemy #1 to those folks, and trying to blame George W. Bush won´t fly anymore, so El Rushbo makes a ready target. Fox news is no longer a valid target with so many libs on panels to make them "fair and balanced" to the RINOs and only mildly conservative "conservatives".

If it were not for Limbaugh and Levin, there wouldn´t be anyone to give an opposing view. Hannity used to stand on principle, but he is slowly going over to the RINO side. When he pals around with idiots like Bob Beckel and Juan Williams, he quickly loses his convictions.

This is a calculated move the President to disarm any opposition. It´s part of a larger strategy to be very aggressive in turning as much public opinion against conservative views. This in part is the same thing that the Democrats are using in trying to turn a red Texas into a blue Texas. It´s not going to end and conservatives need to quit whining about it and take it straight on.

I do NOT tune in to hear liberals lie and go unchallenged. I do NOT tune in to hear him sheepishly admit that Obama won and we lost.

Let´s think about this, Mrs. o. is about to unleash the flying monkeys of Organizing for Obama and the Advancement of communism in America Team to influence public opinion. Yet Rush, Fox, etc. are to sit down and shut up. Nothing unfair about her tactics, or those of the head of the communist group, Jim Messina.

Thank you, Mr. President, for insuring that Rush Limbaugh´s audience will continue to "grow by leaps and bounds".

Here is hoping that the influence of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Herman Cain, and other conservative voices with daily access to a microphone will continue to grow and break through the leftist lies.

FTA - He claimed that “leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done,” as opposed to the opposing party which he views as obstructionist.

Proof that this president is a dyed in the wool Marxist/Communist. He detests a media that questions he or his party´s agenda. How long until witch hunts for republicans begin? How long until we are called out and shamed for daring to embrace INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM over collective cowering before the state?

"RUSH LIES, RUSH LIES, RUSH LIES!" the liberals claim over and again. And they monitor every minute of his show ten hours each week.

But they come up with a "lie" that they try to discredit him with only once in a great while and it always turns out to be something they took out of context or something Rush said as a joke.

I can give you lies from Obama on a daily if not an hourly basis. So the liberals can only find a Rush "lie" a couple of times a year? Examples please from lying liberals!

Sounds like a few of our posters who frequently complain about El Rushbo or "talk show hosts" without naming names. (But as his show promo says, "When they say ´talk,´ they really mean ´Rush.´)

This won´t help Rush´s efforts to lower his profile.

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

AUGUSTA, Ga.— Bubba Watson has won the Masters for the second time in three years. Watson claimed another green jacket by shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round Sunday, fending off Jordan Spieth’s bid to become the youngest major champion since 1931. The 20-year-old Texan led by two shots heading to the eighth hole, but the tournament changed suddenly. Watson made two straight birdies, Spieth took back-to-back bogeys — and just like that, Watson was up by two strokes at the turn. The left-hander led the rest of the way, adding to the 2012 title he won in more

The military is taking steps to prepare women for combat roles in 2016. The Marine Corps announced that it would give young female lieutenants who wash out of the grueling Infantry Officer Course a second shot, same as their male counterparts. The Army is conducting a study to test just how fit a soldier has to be to engage in combat. The study involves 60 women and 100 men. CBS News reported on both developments last week. The Marine Corps announcement came after Marine 2nd Lt. Sage Santangelo took the Infantry Officer Court and wrote about her experience last month

It’s DUMBO — really DUMBO! Crafty hobos are turning the Manhattan Bridge into a veritable shantytown, complete with elaborate plywood shacks that are truly “must see to believe.” One of the coffin-sized living spaces — which have been built into the bridge frame near the Manhattan entrance — is secured with a flimsy bike lock and bolted to a metal beam by its inhabitant. The pods are built into the underside of the upper deck, below car traffic but above the subway and bike lanes.

Moving Day at The Masters included 20-year-old golfer Jordan Spieth rising up the leaderboard to finish in 1st place alongside Bubba Watson. Saturday was an excellent opportunity for apparel manufacturer Under Armour to take center stage, with logos positioned all over Spieth’s sprawling body. The brand’s opportunity to be featured on air will only be enhanced in the Final Round with Spieth attempting to become the youngest player to win The Masters, besting a 21-year-old Tiger Woods who first won the tournament in 1997. Speaking of Tiger, he is noticeably absent from this year’s Masters Tournament. Rory McIlroy

Today, the image would have gone viral in an instant: The president of the United States, dripping wet in swim trunks before a throng of excited beachgoers, trading a look and a laugh with an attractive woman in a polka-dot bikini. But well before the Internet´s relentless rationing of spontaneous fame, the 1962 photo of President Kennedy at Santa Monica´s beach made quite a splash. For a Los Angeles woman named Eva Ban, its effect lasted a lifetime. Ban was the woman in the two-piece swimsuit, which was called a bikini in news accounts but was modest by today´s standards.

What “wine-dark sea” was to Homer, “Koch brothers” is to Harry Reid. (Video) Reid, however, isn’t in search of a metrical line to fill out a great poem. He is simply executing the latest Democratic campaign to stigmatize private citizens in the service of his partisan political purposes. When Reid took to the floor of

Catherine Engelbrecht became the face of the IRS scandal with her riveting testimony before Congress on how her group True the Vote was targeted by the IRS for selective persecution and harassment. (Video) Recently, it was discovered that Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings had a hand in the IRS targeting True the Vote. You might remember Cummings as the grandstanding Democrat who railed against Darrell Issa’s investigation of the scandal after a Congressional hearing with IRS official Lois Lerner had closed (and then implied that Issa was racist): Further making the situation ironic and unsightly for justice-avoiding Democrats

A group of Asian Americans is starting a grassroots effort to garner support for the Republican Party and its candidates, saying the GOP most closely aligns with their core values including family, education and entrepreneurship. The group, the Asian Republican Coalition, is co-founded by international investment banker John Ying, who during the 2012 presidential election cycle served on the Republican National Finance Committee. “We need a forum, and this first step will go a long way,” Ying told FoxNews.com earlier this week. He hopes the effort, which will include a May 6 kickoff event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.,

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
