Robert F. Kennedy Jr: Fox News Has Divided America In a Way Not Seen Since the Civil War By Noel Sheppard Created 12/08/2012 – 11:13am

 

Robert F. Kennedy Jr said of Fox News Friday, “It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War.”

This occurred during an online video interview with the Huffington Post (video follows with transcript and commentary):

 

ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR: There’s two things happening. One is the influence of big money in politics, and the other is the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News. 95 percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing, and you need, according to Pew survey, and you, so a whole section of our country that that’s what they’re hearing. They wake up in the morning, when they go to bed at night.

 

 

Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News. I think that that has, that has, it’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War, and that it’s empowered these large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United States Congress elected – the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party.

 

This is pretty hysterical considering President Obama met with representatives from MSNBC Tuesday to discuss tax policy.

 

It seems a metaphysical certitude Kennedy doesn’t see anything wrong with that.
