President Obama Laments
Rush Limbaugh And Fox News’
Influence On Public Debate

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/27/2013 2:30:06 PM

In a soon-to-be-released interview with The New Republic, President Obama reportedly laments the negative influence Fox News and Rush Limbaugh can have on the congressional debate over various pieces of legislation. The president told TNR editor Frank Foer and owner Chris Hughes that “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates.” The media can either help break or uphold partisan gridlock, the president said, adding that “If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest,

Thats a bit one sided isn´t it Mr President? Is it alright for the left´s opinion talkers to spew their bile, but a conservative and a middle of the road news channel cannot.
I think this shows a "I am right and everyone who disagrees is wrong" attitude, sir.

Note Obama´s lack of details as to why these attacks by Rush are not justified. Fox should not be mentioned inthe same breath as Rush.

Obama is out of gas morally, bankrupt financially and morally and maxed out on what he can do mentally, with the media and with spending (like a rock star).

The President says “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates.” Does he even realize what he has admitted here.

This is what we have been screaming all along ... the media does shape the debate, always has shaped the debate while constantly claiming to be impartial. The President has made it clear that he needs the media to shape the debate in his favor for his efforts to prevail. The likes of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, who present a different side to the debate, must be silenced ! Anyone who doesn´t agree with him must be silenced ! Chilling ! And the President has just come out and made that pronouncement. Are the sheep listening?

I have no doubt the king is upset. After all the low info voters are his base. Those of us who actually look for more balanced news are a threat. Remember the truth and facts are not the friends of the kingdom.

Obama wishes for the good old days.

You know, when the king could lift his hand and say, "Off with their heads!"

And his minions would quickly do the deed.

All hail King Obama! May his name be praised and his word become law! (Just practicing for the underground resistance.)

What kind of campaign did this man run?

It certainly wasn´t about detailing all the great things he has personally done for our nation...

No, it was all about running against Fox and Limbaugh. He ran a smear campaign with his willing accomplices in the media.

Where is all the hoopla over the death of Trayvon Martin these days? The media had it on 24/7 for months trying to gin up that it was a racially motivated hate crime.

And believe you me, Obama´s media drained as much as it could trying to create a black vs white story that played well into the hands of the dictator. Once re-elected, it has been put on the shelf.

Limbaugh is public enemy #1 to those folks, and trying to blame George W. Bush won´t fly anymore, so El Rushbo makes a ready target. Fox news is no longer a valid target with so many libs on panels to make them "fair and balanced" to the RINOs and only mildly conservative "conservatives".

If it were not for Limbaugh and Levin, there wouldn´t be anyone to give an opposing view. Hannity used to stand on principle, but he is slowly going over to the RINO side. When he pals around with idiots like Bob Beckel and Juan Williams, he quickly loses his convictions.

This is a calculated move the President to disarm any opposition. It´s part of a larger strategy to be very aggressive in turning as much public opinion against conservative views. This in part is the same thing that the Democrats are using in trying to turn a red Texas into a blue Texas. It´s not going to end and conservatives need to quit whining about it and take it straight on.

Everyone is spot on..Rush and Levin are at the battlefront.
Hannity needs to do some soul searching..
I do NOT tune in to hear liberals lie and go unchallenged. I do NOT tune in to hear him sheepishly admit that Obama won and we lost.
I do NOT tune in for him to give a platform to liberal callers and talking heads.

Let´s think about this, Mrs. o. is about to unleash the flying monkeys of Organizing for Obama and the Advancement of communism in America Team to influence public opinion. Yet Rush, Fox, etc. are to sit down and shut up. Nothing unfair about her tactics, or those of the head of the communist group, Jim Messina.

Thank you, Mr. President, for insuring that Rush Limbaugh´s audience will continue to "grow by leaps and bounds".

Here is hoping that the influence of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Herman Cain, and other conservative voices with daily access to a microphone will continue to grow and break through the leftist lies.

FTA - He claimed that “leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done,” as opposed to the opposing party which he views as obstructionist.

Proof that this president is a dyed in the wool Marxist/Communist. He detests a media that questions he or his party´s agenda. How long until witch hunts for republicans begin? How long until we are called out and shamed for daring to embrace INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM over collective cowering before the state?

"RUSH LIES, RUSH LIES, RUSH LIES!" the liberals claim over and again. And they monitor every minute of his show ten hours each week.

But they come up with a "lie" that they try to discredit him with only once in a great while and it always turns out to be something they took out of context or something Rush said as a joke.

I can give you lies from Obama on a daily if not an hourly basis. So the liberals can only find a Rush "lie" a couple of times a year? Examples please from lying liberals!

Sounds like a few of our posters who frequently complain about El Rushbo or "talk show hosts" without naming names. (But as his show promo says, "When they say ´talk,´ they really mean ´Rush.´)

This won´t help Rush´s efforts to lower his profile.

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
