New Scapegoat for a Lousy Economy: Fox News is Hogging All the Success

It’s no secret that Team Obama loathes Fox News, but this spin is “zero sum game” theory at its most desperate and laughable.

From a Rolling Stone interview:

I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.

Yeah, a company thriving in spite of a lousy economy does tend to drag down overall economic growth. How are regular Americans supposed to succeed and how is America supposed to move forward and be competitive in the world with Fox News holding it back in such a way?

But on the other side of the coin, most of the Hope-Puppet media outlets with a point of view Obama agrees with are in a slow financial swirl down the toilet, if not already out in the septic tank, and they don’t exactly seem to have stimulated the economy either, so I’m confused.

Don’t worry Mr. President — even though Fox News is succeeding, the country continues to resemble CNN more and more each day. As a matter of fact, if America’s economy had a face, right now it would look like Larry King.
