Obama Says His Polarization Numbers Have Nothing to Do With Him – Blames FOX News-Rush Limbaugh, MSNBC
Barack Obama sat down for an interview with far left fanboy Ezra Klein of VOX News today.
The president said his polarization numbers have nothing to do with him but are the fault of FOX News and Rush Limbaugh.
[A] lot of it has to do with the fact that a) the balkanization of the media means that we just don’t have a common place where we get common facts and a common worldview the way we did 20, 30 years ago. And that just keeps on accelerating, you know. And I’m not the first to observe this, but you’ve got the Fox News/Rush Limbaugh folks and then you’ve got the MSNBC folks and the — I don’t know where Vox falls into that, but you guys are, I guess, for the brainiac-nerd types. But the point is that technology which brings the world to us also allows us to narrow our point of view. That’s contributed to it.
