RFK Jr: Right-Wing Controls American Media, Fox News Has Divided US to a Point not Seen Since Civil

During a discussion on HuffPost Live Friday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gave a strong condemnation of what he calls the “right wing media” and particularly Fox News.

“It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War,” Kennedy said of Fox News during the discussion focused on fracking. “Its empowered large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United State Congress elected — the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party.”

The nephew of President John F. Kennedy and son of former senator and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy made these claims against Fox while describing what he sees as the two biggest problems in American politics: the influence of big money and “the right-wing control of the American media.”

In addition to Fox News, Kennedy criticized right-wing talk radio that he describes as having a negative and large influence on whole sections of the country.

“Ninety-five percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing, and you need, according to Pew survey, and you–so a whole section of our country that that’s what they’re hearing. They wake up in the morning, when they go to bed at night,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy also claimed that Republicans “are the only ones that have their own (TV) network.”

Does he really believe this or is he just stupid? I guess he's never watched MSNBC.

Kennedy’s can say anything because they are Democrats
who support slavery, Sharia and al Qaeda with the RINOs.

A brilliant mind. His grasp of the facts is staggering, and his eloquence is unmatched. You know, a deep thinker like that could really go places ... if his name were Kennedy.

The criminal basis of the wealth of the Kennedy’s fits well with their participation in the criminal enterprise known as the Democrat Party IMO.

Birds of a feather........

The rat-faced, empty-headed Kennedys are athema to America along with their patron saint Bronco Bama.

What has this guy been smoking? He is way off base with this. The USA is divided but it wasn’t because of the “Right Wing” press. Name one Newspaper that is Tea Party focused? The press would rather go broke than support right wing—pro-American causes.

The Right controlling the media? Only a liberal could have this distorted view! Considering the source is a Kennedy, I am not surprised. Now the Media will repeat this falsehood until the sheeple believe.

"Does he really believe this or is he just stupid?"

Just another lying Kennedy ghoul!

From "Mary {his wife} kicked out of Camelot" - nydailynews.com:

They couldn't just let Mary Richardson Kennedy rest in peace.

The estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who was buried near the Kennedy clan’s Hyannis Port compound over the objections of her siblings, was dug up last week and moved to a remote part of St. Francis Xavier Cemetery...

Instead of spending eternity buried near Camelot members Eunice and Sargent Shriver — RFK Jr.’s aunt and uncle — Mary was shunted about 700 feet away to a lonely hilltop on the other end of the cemetery.

...Questions about the grave switch were relayed to RFK Jr. by a close friend, but he did not issue a response.

...yeah, OBAMA’S corrupt administration has nothing to do with division in this country. Enlightening the public, educating the masses, spreading information, ALL are evil....
If you praise a falsehood,hide facts,lie,cheat,steal, and undermine basic laws of the country, that’s good...Uncle Teddy would be proud.
