Obama Slams Fox News as 'Destructive'

President Barack Obama is blasting Fox News as "destructive," saying the cable channel's point of view is "undeniable." Obama made his comments in a Rolling Stone article, reports The New York Times. Fox is in tune with legendary newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst and other media giants who expressed a point of view, Obama said.

Obama, Fox, Murdoch, Hearst“The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history,” Obama said in the Rolling Stone interview.

“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.”

Obama also said Fox is a winner on the bottom line: "As an economic enterprise, it's been wildly successful."
