Fox Criticizes Networks For Not Jumping On Its Manufactured Obama Controversy

E-mail Print PDF

Fox and FriendsFox News host Neil Cavuto and Media Research Center president Brent Bozell castigated the mainstream news networks Thursday for not covering President Obama's speech last week, claiming "it took the networks four days" to "even mention" Obama's "controversial comment." During that speech, Obama made the unremarkable observation that business owners do not achieve success in a vacuum, but that public infrastructure -- such as roads, schools, and fire departments -- create a community that supports businesses.

In the days following Obama's remarks, Fox & Friends aired a deceptively edited version of the president's remarks to give the appearance that Obama had told business owners they didn't build their own business. The network eventually dedicated a total of more than two hours of airtime pushing its deceptively edited version of Obama's comments over 42 segments in just two days this week.

Cavuto and Bozell blasted mainstream media outlets for not covering the president's remarks for four days, ignoring the fact that Obama's comments were ripped out of their proper context.
