President Obama Zings Fox News on CNBC, Fox News Alleges ‘Man Crush’

In an interview on CNBC yesterday, the President made an Earth-shattering observation about Fox News’ coverage of him:

Think Progress ably points out the inherent contradiction in John Harwood’s question, versus his assertion that CNBC has been slapping Obama around for awhile.

As soon as I saw this, I knew there would be some kind of whiny outcry, kind of like the one by CNBC’s own Rick Santelli not long ago, and I didn’t have to go too far to find it:

Yeah, President Obama is waaaay off base.  One of the first rules of journalism is to question your subject’s masculinity out of left field.

Hannity seems to really think he’s got a great punchline with his “obsession” bit, and he proves it by showing his carefully collected video treasury of the President saying “Hannity.”

Still, maybe he has a point.  Remember that time the President did a segment on Hannity’s dog?

Or that time Obama went around asking people what Hannity was putting in his mouth?

Let’s also not forget the President’s probing analysis of Hannity’s sex life:

This sounds to me like a case of the pot calling the bunny boiled.


  1. Faux “news’ sucks so bad nobody even want to comment.
    Shit, who wants to watch BillO shout down people with commom sense and decency.

    Why not just watch pro wrestling?

    Tommy, we need to preserve actual journalism IN PRINT.

    BillO, Rush Faux News, and the whole shouting crowd are not reporting, It is entertainment. This crap should not be setting the next ‘news’ agenda.

  2. “First of all, I’ve got one television station entirely devoted to attacking my administration.”

    President Barack Obama
    as per CNN


  3. ‘OBAMA: It’s very hard for me to swallow that one. First of all, I’ve got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration. I mean, you know, that’s a pretty…’
    HE’S got one television station? More like there’s one he DOESN’T have.

    ‘OBAMA: Well, that’s a pretty big megaphone. And you’d be hard pressed if you watched the entire day to find a positive story about me on that front.
    Story about ME. Says it all.

  4. fisting, huh?

    errrrrryeah, right….

    that would explain the totally blissful look on Mrs.O’s face….


    too funny….
