What do you think of Fox News? Do you think it's a good institution for America and for democracy?
[Laughs] Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. We've 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 it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It's a point of view that I disagree with. It's 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, it's been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it's that Fox is very successful.

Stifling debt and crippling taxes are good for the country how?
Boy do we need a R_v0lut -0 n.
I wonder when was that golden age of objective reporting he refers to...ah I get it, the one where the only message one got from formulated by the DNC.
He is not one of us, and I’m not talking about the color of his skin or his birth certificate.
When it comes to opposition Ob is such a WUSSY... a hybrid wimp.
What, no mention of the severe leftward tilt of 90% of the media, including Rolling Stone? Balanced coverage is slanted coverage to liberals so accustomed to a far-left bias.
That bird only sings one note!!!
Mr. ‘O’ is the “victim in chief” ...he needs to stop the sniveling!! Hey, “O”... STFU about it and start doing your JOB!!
The viewership ratings prove it.
So in essence, this man is saying, that the American People are "destructive".
We know this is what he thinks.
I would watch him like an eagle even MORE SO throughout October, for a foreign policy surprise, and then particularly the day following the Mid Term election, because the Narcissist, Arrogant Emperor is NOT going to take this whole thing very well. I just wonder which Ammendment to the Constitution he will target first.
Buck up, 0bama.
I NEVER want him to “do his job”! He is illegitimate, to the core. God Save the Republic.
My day begins with a period of laughter. Mr. President decries the very nerve of FOX to have “a viewpoint and agenda of its own.” How ‘terrible’ for the country. Is there a single word of criticism for the rest of the so-called “news” stations that poison the airways? I look, but do not find.
FOX is truly found guilty of but one thing. It demonstrates the unmitigated gall and nerve and “chutzpah” to exercise its right to disagree with HIS HIGHNESS.
Unfortunately for Dear Leader, there appears to be millions of Americans who favor the viewpoint of Fox News instead of Saul Alinsky. That fact is the only hope we have of saving our country from the Socialist takeover he is pushing down the throats of the people.
His massive and growing unpopularity is FOX NEWS’ fault.
OK, got it......
The guy never turns down an invitation to throw a pity party for himself.
“STFU about it and start doing your JOB!!”
My GOD, man...That is the last thing we want him to do !!!!!
His job is to DESTROY the USA and make it the USSA...
