Fox News deludes itself about its stance on poverty following some apt commentary from President Obama about the negative depiction of poor people in the media.
After President Obama made some of the most interesting comments of his career at a Georgetown University panel on poverty Tuesday, I worried that the only thing liberals would take from the event was that Obama accused Fox News of calling poor Americans “sponges” and “leeches.”
But now I have another theory. Is it possible that Obama, playing a game of eleventy-dimensional chess, attacked Fox News because he knew they’d overreact — only to set up the most damning Daily Show supercut ever?
Because that is what the president — and America — got.
