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.
I say FUJFKjr:-)
Um, Bobbo, you’re looking the wrong way here, I’d say look to your shaman in the White Hut as well as look in the mirror at the ones causing this Cold Civil War.
RFK JR complaining about “big money.”
Hey, buddy, you’re still living off that Chicago mob money you inherited.
FOX news isn’t among those mediots getting official propaganda briefings directly from the resident.
One definition of insanity is having Kennedy as your last name.
“””Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News.”””
W@hich means 78% get their fake but accurate news from the DNCmedia.
Failure to goose-step in a pretty line is indeed “divisive”
The liberals sure miss their TOTAL MONOPOLY on information from 1970-2000.
OH GOODNESS.....a Kennedy is trying to become relavent...they’ve been quiet too long....And what kind of a business has this kennedy begun, operated and retired from, or is he living off the remains of his grandfathers offshore investments and the government? Funny how these holier than thou are so free with comments.
Is he one of the few who hasn’t skied into a tree or crashed a plane of a boat or a car?
Well, just an aside to RFK double-junior, hangover-leftover drunken-relic-from-the-media-wet-dream-madeup-Camelot, I’ve quit watching Fox, listening to Boortz, Hannity et al (save Rush). It hasn’t change my outlook one effing bit!
I still hate you, your entire family, the rabid liberals you consort with, and all the people that support the likes of you. Fox really doesn’t have anything to do with it asshole. I’d deck you where you stand if I ever met you face to face.
Hussein is the Great Divider.
Been dipping into grandpa’s illegal booze . . .
Kennedys are a rotten bunch of criminals and have hatred for outside news sources. Thank God for Fox and Free Republic.
Didn’t he just dig up the body of his ex-wife and have it moved away?
Talk about being divisive... sheesh!
It’s funny how the demon’s of the left howl that we have right wing propaganda now when for so many years they have been brainwashing the people in the guise of news on all of the news stations nationwide. Very sophisticated stuff they have been doing. So it is just too bad poor babies, isn’t it!
His argument about Fox makes even less sense than his idiotic public “defense” of his murdering cousin, Skakel (finally in prison for having beaten Martha Moxley to death with a golf club), on grounds that make the argument that Elvis is not dead seem realistic by comparison.
Scratch a leftist, find a fascist, every one of em.
People had better wise up.
