Obama Rips Fox: ‘We’re Going to Have to Change How the Media Reports’

by John Nolte
May 13, 2015

For going on seven years we have learned three things about President Obama: 1) He loves the poor so much he continues to create more of them. 2) He loves the poor so much he does everything in his power to keep them poor. 3) He doesn’t see the opposition as loyal, but as bad players — his enemy. This is especially true of Fox News, which Obama ripped as anti-poor bigots during a Wednesday afternoon summit on poverty.

We’re used to this Obama, the forever-partisan who has never seen himself as president of all the people but only of those who worship him.

What was most revealing about the president’s comments was his expressed desire to “change how the media reports.”

Speaking of Fox News, the poor, and the way GOP leaders think, Obama said, [W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues.”

    1. Why does EVERYONE but him have to change???
    2. Now, he has gone and pissed off the very people who have been enabling him for 6 long years.
    3. Hide and watch as they chew him up.
    4. I HOPE.

    obummer can’t stand anyone telling it like it is (i.e.: his lies and screw ups)

  • Stanley Smith says:

    Let me think about this for a moment………Our president, the person hired by the people of the United States, the guy who swore an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States, is now telling us that he wants to changed the way that the news is reported. He wants to place restrictions on the way that journalists analyze the facts and report their conclusions. He’s all for freedom of speech and the 1st Amendment to our Constitution as long as that speech agrees with whatever viewpoint he holds most dearly.

    I must be getting too old for today’s politics. I would like to harken back to the days when politicians spent their time making backroom deals and glad-handing their constituents. They had thicker skins and spent less time getting their feelings hurt when someone called them out on a lie.

  • Mike_Travis says:

    I agree with Ovomit, though not as he intended. We DO need to change how the media reports though it is not FOX that needs to change but the communist main stream media that doubles as the public relations arm of the OVomit regime.

    So start by reporting all of Ovomit’s crimes, beginning with fraud, then Treason, then on down the line. When the MSM does that they will have become honest. Until then, they are all liars and should be treated like Brian Williams was for his lies.

  • MARYSWEET says:

    You know what that means when he says he’s going to “change” something. He said he was going to “change” America. He needs to be stopped if it isn’t already too late because what obama means is that there will be NO conservative radio or TV AT ALL. ONLY WHAT OBAMA DEEMS APPROPRIATE WHICH MEANS ONLY WHAT HE WANTS THE PUBLIC TO KNOW AND HOW HE WANTS THEM TO KNOW IT.

      It happens regularly when Disqus is involved, including on this site. Anything that brushes a feather against the thin skin is removed.

      1. MARYSWEET says:

        It always happens when the truth is written. It doesn’t pass the media test though cause they just give their liberal opinions, not news. And liberals are so thin skinned.

  • gfinms says:

    The libs, no longer have, total control of the media, and it drives them crazy. They are all for freedom of the press, as long as it is, of their liking.

  • carpkiller says:

    What needs changing is the trash living in our whitehouse.

  • cool breeze says:

    typical elite-leftist politician. ITS OUR SHIT THAT STINKS AND HIS DOESN’T. Controlling my destiny is my job, nobody else’s. Bobnstuff is bellyaching about folks making 24k / year. That’s their own fault. Don’t like 24k, build a skill set that commands more money. Guys like obama need poor people to advance their own agenda

    1. bobnstuff says:

      Are you not the same person that complained that the job creation numbers are a lie and all the jobs created are minim wage. You can’t have it both ways.

      1. Charles Hood says:

        bobnstuff, Obumbo’s job creation is a total lie if you consider the jobs his policies have produced. The only job creation since he took charge came from Texas. Texas has produced more than 90% of the new jobs over the last 6 years. Texas is a GOP state.

    “Obama Rips Fox: ‘We’re Going to Have to Change How the Media Reports’”

    Roughly a year and a half until the end of this POS’s illegal presidency (if he does not declare martial law), and I predict that America will see the full force and intent of this guy with more communist influence.

    Prepare America, prepare for military action or prepare for the FEMA Camps for they both are in play!

    1. Mike_Travis says:

      David, we cannot afford to allow him to leave office. We must find a way to arrest him before he leaves so his criminal acts can be undone. We know the cowards in the gop won’t do anything so it is up to We the People. If we do not act, America is finished.

  • Old lady in Texas says:

    That guy in the white house has been against FOX News from the very get-go!!!

    1. Halftrack2 says:

      Fox tell the truth and Omuslim cannot tolerate truth or facts…

  • bobnstuff says:

    Obama is right about Fox, the only station to fight for the right to lie to their viewers. Painting the poor as lazy bums is the standard on the right even when the facts don’t back them up. No one at Fox has ever heard of the working poor and as the voice of the right it reflexes the views of the republican law makers. You never hear about the fact that the average wage at the largest employer in the country is $24,000 per year which means they can’t pay their bills with out help. Not a story for Fox. You never hear the fact that food stamp give $4 per day per person to live on, try spending only $4 per day on food and see what you get to eat. Not on Fox and never coming from the right. If you want fair and
    balanced you have to run these stories if you want to talk about the mythical Welfare Queens.

        There are hundreds of links like this one, Plus go check just who gets the Government aid, then is if I’m not telling the truth.

    2. Centurion says:

      Obviously you get all your news from CNN and MSNBC. And obviously you believe everything those two networks tell you. What a fool you are.

      1. Halftrack2 says:

        Bobnstuff will worship his 1/2 White Muslim until the day he dies… No reason to waste time telling him the truth or presenting facts….He is so full of Socialists Cool-Aid he is hopelessly blinded by lies and Socialists propaganda…

        1. bobnstuff says:

          You have no facts or proof, just lies. Prove me wrong with facts, links, real stuff.

    3. American ex-Pat says:

      You have inhaled so much of the fumes from the Obama tailpipe that your breath has a faint hint of hydrocarbons. Keep sucking on the exhaust and drinking the Kool Aid, your mind is just where they want it,
      stuck in Neutral!

    4. Mike_Travis says:

      ROFLMAO! Who let you out of the asylum, bobbie? The average welfare recipient makes more than the average American worker, so put that in your hookah and smoke it. Then go take your meds.

      1. Korean_Vet says:

        Mike–you’re Right–some of the Welfare Takers I saw–were
        “Driving Recent-Model Lincolns & Buicks”-!

    5. megan says:

      Hard to feel sorry for the folks on food stamps when most need to lose 100#

    6. Andy says:

      What a jerk. With no common sense. The poor are poor because they do not try to improve their lifestyle but rather complain that those who have worked their way out of that style are their enemy’s . Get off your dead ass and go out into the society to improve yourself.

      1. bobnstuff says:



        Read these or one of hundreds of fact check on welfare and educate yourself about just who gets what for real. You see I live in the real world were facts matter.

      2. sweetqueen777 says:

        Many of the poor, are poor because they do not know how to manage their finances. The poor tend to leave all their lights on, all the time. They tend to have every TV in the house on, all the time. They run AC units, but leave doors open, and use their ovens to heat the house up in the winter. They purchase crap that they and their kids do not need. They do not understand how to manage a check book or debit card. Many I know actually take stuff to the pawn shop every month, then pay more to get it out of the pawn shop. Every month. Maybe our wonderful public schools should spend ore time teaching basic life skills and less on how to apply a condom. (although that is a needed skill, I don’t think anyone really needs instruction on how to use it.)

        1. bobnstuff says:

          It’s not just the people on welfare but the poor in general who do those things. Our education system has fail them. This isn’t something new, I was never taught home finances in school and that was 45 years ago.

      YOU”RE joking…..RIGHT?

      1. bobnstuff says:

        I’m not a big Obama fan but I hate lies. Check the facts on welfare and who gets it and you will find that Fox is misleading everyone. I have gone to web site after web site and all the ones with information on the laws around welfare and the numbers around welfare are pretty clear that the myths that Fox News put out are dead wrong. The third estate has fallen to a sad level in keeping everyone honest. Check the links I have posted if you think I’m lying. Do a web search for yourself on who gets welfare. Get facts and figures. Another fun search is Fox lies, Google it and see what you get. We have big problems in this country that need to be taken care of, poverty being one of them. Calling the poor lazy doesn’t do anything to fix the problem and in fact most aren’t, try working the jobs they have and see if you have the energy
        to improve your life.

        1. nonstopca says:

          Cry me a river….Very few.. stated life any poorer then I…….with 60+ years of HARD WORK…I’m now “middle Class” IF I CAN DO IT SO CAN YOU…get off your butt and get a job.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            I have climbed the ladder a number of times and know what it takes to be successful, I have helped other do the same thing. Not everyone can do it. I have interviewed and hired thousands of people over the years and there are just some people who are not going to get ahead. It’s not just hard work that gets you ahead in this world. If all it took was hard work my son would be CEO of US Steel. He works two jobs, went to school to get a skill and still needs help from me ten years later. He doesn’t smoke, drink, do drugs or party. He works seven days a week. He has no life out side of working. I guess you didn’t need any help getting were you are but count yourself lucky.

          2. Charles Hood says:

            bobnstuff, I was born poor and pulled myself up. I raised 4 children and none of them ever came to me for help. They were taught how to live without help by working and spending their money wisely.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            I sorry your children didn’t feel that they could come to you in their times of need but had to go it alone. You suffered without help so they should to. My children knew that if they needed help I would do what I could. Me children understand that I have their backs. Families takes care of of each other.

    8. sweetqueen777 says:

      I have met some of the lazy bums and welfare “queens”. I have met entire families receiving multiple checks. Some of these people are extremely adept at manipulating the system. Do not act like they do not exist. I have also met many who are honest and try to work hard, but just cannot get a leg up. Many of these (both groups) use recreational drugs, and cannot get a decent job because they cannot pass a drug test. I do not know what the solution will be, maybe more caseworkers, to actually visit the homes, ,but throwing more money into the pot will not solve the problem. We have done that for about 40 years now, and it does not solve anything. And, if the government twa not takiing so much of my money, I would have enough to share with my needier neighbors. As it is, I can barely pay my own bills, with my disability check. And, NO, I do not feel guilty about that, because I worked like a dog for over 40 years.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        You are 100% right more money will fix nothing. We need a system that will help people get out of the cycle of poverty. We need Case workers that can teach people to be self reliant, We need job training that ends in good jobs. I know people who have gone through a number of training class’s who find they
        still can’t get a job that pays anything. One of my daughters has do two rounds with America-core and she has work with young people in collage prep the first time and the second time she taught young adults how to work in and run a restaurant. It doesn’t take money, it takes people working with people to make the differences.

    9. stu magoo says:

      hey bob, get your nose out of odouches arse and wake up and smell the coffee for once instead of your hero’s stench. then go educate yourself and acquire the skills to obtain a job that pays more than 24k. Welfare is supposed to be a stopgap, not a lifestyle to pass on to your children and grandchildren. “change how the news is reported'”. that’s got dictator written all over it, you simple minded fool. it’s morons like you bob that have aided this pos potus in his evil agenda. wake up you silly foolish dunderhead.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        So Obama has fixed the job market and the economy and there are plenty of good paying jobs out there, and all you have to do to get them is go to school and get new skills.
        That’s great news. Who’s kidding who. If a person has $30,000 to pay for a education they might get a job or not. I know way to many people who went back to school and now not only are they still underemployed but now the owe $30,000. I will bet you know nothing about the rule for people on welfare. Educate yourself and you might be surprised.
