Fox News CEO Roger Ailes had some harsh words about Barack Obama recently.

In an interview published by the New Republic Monday, Ailes said, "The president likes to divide people into groups."

“He’s too busy getting the middle class to hate rich people, blacks to hate whites," Ailes told TNR. "He is busy trying to get everybody to hate each other.”

The Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz quickly came to Obama's defense asking, "What in Obama’s record casts him as a racially divisive leader?"

Really, Howie? You think race relations are better in America today than they were before Obama took office?

Maybe Kurtz should read his own publication. Here's what the Daily Beast reported last April:

"Back in 2008, 52% of Americans told Pew Research Center that they expected race relations to get better as a result of Obama’s election; only 9% anticipated a decline. But today that 43-point gap has vanished. According to the Newsweek survey, only 32% of Americans now think that race relations have improved since the president’s inauguration; roughly the same number (30%) believe they have gotten worse. Factor in those who say nothing has changed and the result is staggering: nearly 60% of Americans are now convinced that race relations have either deteriorated or stagnated under Obama."

You were saying, Howie?

Roger "The Man With Six Chins" Ailes profits from reporting Obama's divisiveness tactics. As long as Obama roils the masses Ailes garners click revenue. So, is Roger "TMWSC" Ailes part of the problem or part of the solution?

You're implying that the media shouldn't report Obama's own words and actions?

You should do a little research on Roger Ailes before you cast stones. Practically everything he's touched has been a success. He not only seems like a pretty cool guy, but he understands entertainment value better than practically anybody else in the business.

No, they should admit their part in the charade.

Again...repeating POTUS' own words and actions is part of the problem?

Yes, it is, because you people hang on every word looking for something to be outraged about and the media knows it.

The divisive words were already said...by Obama.
Repeating them doesn't change their meaning.
Your argument fails.

One needn't look hard nor long to see something outrageous emitted from Barry's mouth. It's a daily occurrence, save for days like last September 11 when he was AWOL as brave men died.

I haven't listened to either in over a decade. You leftists just have no other argument.
