Robert F. Kennedy Jr: Fox News Has Divided Country In A Way Not Seen Since Civil War

Source: Huffington Post

Robert F. Kennedy Jr told HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps in an interview Friday that he believes conservative media outlets such as Fox News are damaging the country.

Asked how he thought things have changed in the political landscape, Kennedy pointed to "big money" and "the right wing control of the American media, starting with Fox News" as hurtful to collaboration between differing political interests.

"Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News," Kennedy told HuffPost Live. "It's divided our country in a way that we haven't been divided probably since the Civil War, and its empowered large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United State Congress elected -- the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party."

Kennedy, who is the nephew of John F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy and attorney specializing in environmental law, also spoke about the hydraulic fracturing -- or fracking -- and the health risks and associated costs the practice represents for the country.

MSNBC is more partison than is FoxNews, it's just that nobody watches it. Why would anyone care what heroin addict, Katherine Hepburn sound-alike has to say on any subject?

Do you really believe Ed Scultz and Rachek Maddow are middle of the road? Ed Schultz is currently a far lefty. He was once to the far right. If it suits him, he might go to the middle, but he has not done so yet. Maddow is qs far left as they come. Obama is not far enoufh left for her/him and he's a leftist commiw.

Only a radical Leftist like Le Dumbo would say MSNBC is middle of the road. And holding up any Kennedy as anything other than a dug addict or an alcoholic shows how far off base Le Dumbo is.
