Obama blames Fox News for ‘stirring up resentment for the poor that hurts antipoverty efforts’, and that Fox hires people to dislike him.
In a forum on poverty at Georgetown University, Obama complained that in recent decades, “the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, are lazy, are undeserving, got traction,” and blamed the conservative leaning cable channel for its role in the trend.
“I have to say, if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it’s a constant menu. They will find folks that make me mad. I don’t know where they find them,” Obama said. “They’re all like, ‘I don’t want to work, I just want a free Obamaphone, or whatever. That becomes a narrative that gets worked up.”
