The interview touched on the big controversies of Obama’s presidency — Benghazi, healthcare, corruption inside the IRS — with the president saying that a lot of these things only stayed at the forefront of the news because of O’Reilly and Fox News.
When asked about the American people believing they were being misled during weeks after the Benghazi attacks because the president was running for re-election, Obama says, “They believe it because folks like you are telling them.”
Similarly, in response to a question about the IRS scrutinizing conservative groups, Obama says, “These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them.”
What do you think? Has Fox News been too hard on the Obama administration?
