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:
