Obama stated this:
The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. 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.Cue Sean Hannity to step forward and prove the very point which Obama was making. On what other news channel could one refer to "The Anointed One" and have everyone understand instantly that you are referring to the president?
What is that, if not having "a very clear, undeniable point of view"?
