Angry, Bitter Obama: “Domestic Propagandists” Bigger Threat to US Democracy Than Russian Hackers
This guy has some nerve.
The liberal media has treated him with kid gloves and Eskimo kisses for eight years. But not ALL media outlets carry his water.
So today he lashed out at the conservative news outlets.
Obama blasted talk radio and conservative propagandists for making voters vulnerable to fake news.

Business Insider reported:
President Barack Obama on Friday blasted conservative talk radio and partisan news organizations, which he characterized as “domestic propagandists,” for supposedly making voters vulnerable to fake news disseminated by foreign governments to sew chaos into the US political system.
“If fake news that is being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it’s not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect,” Obama said at the annual end-of-the-year press conference in the White House.
The president explained that he did not think it was “far-fetched” to compare some of the so-called fake news items to “the other stuff that folks are hearing from domestic propagandists.”
Obama said that certain media outlets in the US had portrayed government as a place where “everybody is corrupt, and everybody is doing things for partisan reasons, and all of our institutions are full of benevolent actors.
