Robert F. Kennedy Jr: Fox News Has Divided America In a Way Not Seen Since the Civil War By Noel Sheppard Created 12/08/2012 - 11:13am
Robert F. Kennedy Jr said of Fox News Friday, "It's divided our country in a way that we haven't been divided probably since the Civil War."
This occurred during an online video interview with the Huffington Post (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR: Theres two things happening. One is the influence of big money in politics, and the other is the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News. 95 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 thats what theyre hearing. They wake up in the morning, when they go to bed at night.
Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News. I think that that has, that has, it's divided our country in a way that we haven't been divided probably since the Civil War, and that its empowered these large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United States Congress elected - the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party.
This is pretty hysterical considering President Obama met with representatives from MSNBC Tuesday to discuss tax policy.
It seems a metaphysical certitude Kennedy doesn't see anything wrong with that.
Bobby Jr’s a uniter, not a divider. Especially when it comes to babysitters.
Yeah, if it wasn’t for FOX news, we’d all be communists now.
If Fox News and Talk Radio are so powerful, why did Obama get reelected? Kennedy shouldn’t worry aabout Fox and talk radio because he has those millions of Morons on his side.
What is with some people’s obsession with the kennedy loser family? Obviously, the kennedys have some sort of deteriorated or abnormal dna. Who cares what these kennedy mutants say.
Robert is ignorant of our history. I mean really ignorant.
There have been a number of times when the split has been really vicious. All of my older relatives died convinced that FDR was a communist, a tool of Stalin. They were small businessmen and they lost fortunes during FDR’s Depression.
Robert, I wish that were the case. If you'd just look at what Boehner is doing right now, you'd realize what a totally idiotic statement that is.
Since the MSM propaganda machine I’d trying to unite us under an unamerican socialist banner I say bully for fox. Celebrate diversity of thought and beliefs.
“He just left his wife hanging around.”
I wish people would quit posting this crap.
I would say this assclown is an embarrassment to the Kennedy family, but that’s not really possible.
The Kennedy retard clan is about as dumb as a stump. They are dumber than back woods residents.
This man is an idiot....I would hate to see what it would be it were the left wing controlling the media.....
I am guessing the interview was on Huff Post Live. Well in 07 he went on with Glenn Beck on Headline News to debate him on Global warming and he just made no sense and sounded bad. He sounded like a clown. Robert Kennedy Jr is a nutcase.
Hey Bobby your boy Barry is inciting CWII. Fox News just reports it.
RFK Jr. and late wife didn’t pay for many of renovations to make Westchester mansion eco-friendly

For the Kennedys, it was easy being green.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his late wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, didnt pay a penny for the high-end kitchen appliances, dual-flush toilets, solid brass and zinc faucets, hardwood flooring and hypoallergenic rugs when they created their eco-friendly Westchester mansion. Even the bamboo hangers and the cleaning products were free a $1.3 million bonanza of swag.
Now five months after Mary Richardson Kennedys suicide at the sprawling estate in Bedford, her husband is set to make a windfall.

Contractors and vendors donated their services or slashed their rates for the promise of free publicity. There were offers of platinum sponsorships and talk of tours to showcase the mansion and its products. Home-improvement TV host Bob Vila started filming a show chronicling the construction, Our Green House, for NBC. It does not appear the show ever aired.
He didnt think he should pay for anything; even the suits he wears were donated, a source said of RFK Jr. He felt people should pay for him. He had an enormous sense of entitlement.

Glenn Beck versus Robert F. Kennedy, Jr
Favorite thread in months. Thanks!
Go back home and chug down a bottle of Chivas, you spoiled, hypocritical, elitist! I can never remember - was it little Bobby that molested his babysitter? Or did he just get his marriage “annulled” after having a couple of kids? Doesn’t matter. All the Kennedys are drunken, perverted scum. Its Bobby boy and his left wing cabal of Communist America-haters that have used racial politics to divide this country, not Fox News.
Up yours, RJK, Jr.
