Obama shows how he's a true progressive

And that is by calling points of view different from his own "destructive":

Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. Weíve got a tradition in this country of a press that oftentimes is opinionated. 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 ó it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. Itís a point of view that I disagree with. Itís 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, itís been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, itís that Fox is very successful.

The question is, just how far can The Messiah go to prove how out of touch he is with the country? Polls show that FNC is the most watched and most trusted news source today. Obama's sinking in the polls with Election Day right around the corner -- and this is what he offers up? Didn't the constant attacks on the Tea Party teach him and his fellow progressives (like MSNBC) anything? -- that it's only gonna backfire? And c'mon, "destructive?" Like a true "progressive," it isn't enough to merely disagree. Your opponent must be deemed EEEEEVIL!!

My buddy Brent e-mails me "I love the last paragraph. It's not like we're still looking for Bin Laden or anything right?!"

Call me when Fox News has put this country on a path to fiscal ruin. Call me when Fox News has endangered the health care of nearly every American. And call me when Fox News has sold out freedom loving allies to authoritarian thugs.

Until then Mr. President...shut the fu** up.

Oh one other thought...this "golden age of an objective press" Obama misses so much? Yeah, that's when the mainstream media consisted of the 3 networks regurgitating what they read in the liberal NY Times earlier in the day. All this holding liberal propaganda to some competition and fact checking is so darn destructive to the country.

Indeed. And what's more destructive, Mr. President -- Fox News or, say, a Justice Department that consciously violates the Voting Rights Act?
