Krauthammer: FOX News should be proud that we annoy Obama so much

posted at 1:11 pm on January 29, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

As we heard in President Obama’s recent interview with TNR, the White House’s irritation with FOX News and rightward-leaning media outlets continues unabated — but as Charles Krauthammer pointed out last night, that should be more of a source of pride than anything else. Nothing says success quite like your competition’s outspoken annoyance:
 


I love to hear the president whine about FOX News and talk radio. I think we ought to be proud of the fact that we annoy him so much. If you look at the line-up on one side, the liberal media, you start with ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, MSNBC, the elite newspapers, the one remaining news magazine, the universities, Hollywood — it doesn’t stop anywhere. And on the other side, talk radio, FOX News. And they can’t stand the fact that they no longer have a monopoly.

So, I think it ought to be taken as a compliment. What I’ve always said about Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, their genius was understanding and locating a niche audience in broadcast cable news, which is half the American people. The half that have suffered for decades by the fact you get the news presented from a single perspective over and over again.

Finally, the fact that there is a new perspective, talk radio and FOX, and they can’t stand it. It’s a source of pride, I would say.

Sure, everybody’s got their biases (although, as Tucker Carlson lamented in a recent interview, it’s the sources that claim to be fully objective that present the really insidious problem), but general wisdom holds that a little competition never hurt anybody — unless, of course, that competition happens to pose inconveniently tough questions about the real-world consequences of your agenda to the biggest audience in cable news. To hear certain Democrats tell it, our out-of-control debt and spending problems are apparently just a figment of FOX News’ imagination, or something. Oof:

Fox News? LOL

As always, Charles is correct.

It’s become commonplace for the President to call out – single out – not only companies but individuals, in this instance Rush Limbaugh.

And the silence among the media elite is deafening.

Drained Brain on January 29, 2013 at 1:14 PM

Rubio going on and on about how SECURE the border is going to be, and we need “enforcement”…

…but Obama is already saying he’s not going to do it.

Jeb, Jr quit the Senate and maybe get a job working at Fox (if you really want to get under the skin of Obama).

Expect lots of IRS tax audits, Regulatory examinations and
EPA expaminations. Best of all are the EEOC “random” audits.

Obama will always be a thin-skinned, whiny little twerp. Just wait’ll the hilarious ways he’ll piss off Democrats with his constant attention-whoring when he’s no longer president.

Alternative? It’s called the internet and talk radio. People who want to find out can search for what they want to know. There’s no hope for those who wish to be sheeple.

The Dhimmicrats want to stifle talk radio too. If they ever manage to completely cow the media, they’ll be going after the internet next.

And FNC is conservative in the sense that it does have conservative viewpoints expressed, it also has lefty viewpoints expressed.

One obstacle to conservative success is that we are all too ready to criticize our friends. I’m pretty cantankerous, but I usually reserve it for people who disagree with me.

And, actually, nothing says “little man” more than the supposed “Leader of the Free World” complaining about a talk show host and a cable channel while demanding, for all intents and purposes, a completely sycophantic press.

Is Obama so self-conscious about his record that he cannot abide criticism of it or does he just agree with Lenin that the proper role of the media in society is not only one of a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organiser of the masses?

“If you’re not taking flak, you’re not over the target.”

Evidently, Rush and Fox live rent-free in Obama’s head while you live in subsidised housing somewhere in his rectal canal or colon.

PS: I know that you are ecstatic that The New Republic SHOWED US! We called “MomJeans on Fire!” about Obama’s skeet shooting claim and wanted photographic proof.

It’s is enormously satisfying…in a purely schadenfreude sort of way. Sort of like when you idiots cheered tax rises on the “evil rich” only to realise (then, bytch, moan, and blame Bush) that the overwhelming majority of Democrats voted for and President Obama signed into law a tax hike on 77.1% of Americans earlier this year. lol, idiots.

I agree with you on that. When Dems support other Dems, they go more left wing; when Reps support other Reps, they also go more left wing.

Chump, you really need to understand something: I LOVE the FACT that I can fv(k with and over you idiotic Proggies every day and at time that I want. IT’S FUN.

Resist We Much on January 29, 2013 at 2:44 PM

This little meme sounds stupid from Krauthammer, but from you it doesn’t even reach the level of stupid; it’s just sad.

However, I’ll take the deal. You rightists continue to derive enjoyment from “irritating” Progressives and Progressives will continue to derive enjoyment from winning elections and implementing a progressive agenda.

Nice doing business with you!

chumpThreads on January 29, 2013 at 2:58 PM

Now you’re copying and pasting your embarrassing insults?

chumpThreads on January 29, 2013 at 2:31 PM

Speaking of embarrassing…

It’s very simple. Look at the picture of Palin taken five weeks before the birth of Trig and tell me if she looks three months pregnant for five.

She’s seven months pregnant in that picture.

Who are you going to believe, Palin or your lying eyes?

Seriously how conservative do you want FOX to be? Frankly I’d be disappointed if it morphed into a right-wing version of MSNBC.

heretic on January 29, 2013 at 2:55 PM

I think the frustration comes in because the center of gravity of expressed opinion is skewed way left. If most media was like FNC, then the Dems wouldn’t have as much political cover. As it is, they can point and say “Consensus!”.

Fenris on January 29, 2013 at 3:03 PM

Hey cT, check out the thread on assault weapons. It’s not going anywhere.

As far as your progressive agenda moving forward, it hurts your fellow liberals. I wonder why you hate them.

22044 on January 29, 2013 at 3:04 PM

I love to hear the president whine about FOX News and talk radio. I think we ought to be proud of the fact that we annoy him so much.
– Charles Krauthammer

I love that CK sees Obama referring to Fox a total of 2 times in the last 6 months – as proof that ‘we annoy him so much’.
The irony.
Fox’s obsession is indeed a one way street. But of course it requires some serious delusions of grandeur.
Ha.

Your obsession with calling me out as a “Trig Truther” not withstanding, deliberately trying to derail a thread is the very definition of a troll, steebo.

At least try to show some courtesy to your fellow posters.

chumpThreads on January 29, 2013 at 3:12 PM

The fact that Barack Obama is President of the United States. People like you on the right will never reconcile yourselves to the fact that the American voters chose him.

Er, no. You seem to believe that I like ANY politician. I do not. I loathe them and consider government, itself, but a necessary evil.

I will say this to you: I’ve seen (and lived in it) Obamaland and it doesn’t work.

Don’t tell me. Do it. No one will even notice you’re gone.

Well, unlike you, I did CHOOSE to become an American and can easily “un-become” one. Sure, no one will notice if I, alone, leave, but they will if enough like me do.

Well as long as you’re here and you pay your taxes, you don’t have much say, do you?

You see, that’s where you are very, very wrong. I don’t HAVE to pay taxes like you, chump, because I don’t HAVE to work or even have any income that is “taxable” under the law.

I went Galt the day Obama became President and I will ALWAYS be more well off than you.

This little meme sounds stupid from Krauthammer, but from you it doesn’t even reach the level of stupid; it’s just sad.

Nah. It’s a game. I like making you live up to your own rules.

However, I’ll take the deal. You rightists continue to derive enjoyment from “irritating” Progressives and Progressives will continue to derive enjoyment from winning elections and implementing a progressive agenda. Nice doing business with you!

And, I will enjoy watching you bankrupt yourself. Never, ever forget: I’ve been through this before, chump. I ALWAYS come out on top. It’s just the nature of things.

Two times too many, smart guy.
It’s connected to a larger narrative. Everyone except you & cT understands that.
I don’t always agree with CK, but he’s lost more brain cells than you will ever have.

22044 on January 29, 2013 at 3:14 PM

Two things.

One. 1/2 of the population is a nice niche.

Two. If you’re taking flak you must be over the target.

Carry on.

I still think there needs to be an alternative to Fox.

Krauthammer, Faux News and the rest of the bubble-dwelling Right were spectacularly wrong about the election. If “Ha Ha! He doesn’t like us!” is the only solace you pathetic bunch have to cling to, then party on losers, while President Barack Hussein Obama continues with his second term.

chumpThreads on January 29, 2013 at 2:21 PM

You guys are such an angry bitter bunch. It really is heartwarming to know how much you still suffer.

Chuck Schick on January 29, 2013 at 3:28 PM

Actually, nothing says success like winning the Presidency by getting an alltime record number of high school dropout votes.

chumpThreads on January 29, 2013 at 2:21 PM

Edited for accuracy.

Remember that your Dear Leader, who had previously set a new record with 70% of the HS dropout vote in 2008, got 83% of them in PA in 2012, 80% of them in CA, and 73% of them in NV, which not surprisingly has the highest high school dropout rate of all 50 states. How do you think Harry Reid keeps getting re-elected?

Which Dubya did twice.

Krauthammer, Faux News and the rest of the bubble-dwelling Right were spectacularly wrong about the election.

chumpThreads on January 29, 2013 at 2:21 PM

A lot of us “on the Right” were pretty accurate in predicting what the outcome of the election would be.

ddrintn on January 29, 2013 at 5:59 PM

As Richard Nixon once said, “Sock it to me”.

Someone else once said: Poke them till they sequel then hit them where the squeal the loudest.

FOX News should be proud that we annoy Obama so much
