Obama says Fox News Viewers have Different Perception of Reality than Other Americans

Center for American Progress Action Fund from Washington, DC, CC BY-SA 2.0 , via Wikimedia Commons

Former President Barack Obama slammed watchers of Fox News and right-wing media outlets during a speech. Obama said that Americans who choose to watch Fox News have a different perception of reality than other Americans and that the outlet has worked to increase the political divide in the country.

The Hill reports:

“I think a lot of that has to do with changes in how people get information,” Obama said during an interview with The 19th published on Monday. “I’ve spoken about this before, but if you watch Fox News, you perceive a different reality than if you read The New York Times. And those differences have been amplified by social media, which allows people to live in bubbles with other people who think like them.”

Obama said it has become clear to him that the country today is “more divided than when I first ran for president in 2008.”

“But if anyone can help bridge our divides, it’s Joe Biden,” he said. “He’s spent his life bringing people together. And as president, he’s been focused on beating back the pandemic and rebuilding our economy — ideas that Americans from both parties can support.”

Since leaving the White House, Obama has attacked Fox News on multiple occasions, using the network as a foil for pushing so-called birther conspiracy theories and drumming up what he often dismissed as needless and partisan opposition to his policy agenda during his eight years in office.

It seems that Obama thinks that unless Americans blindly believe what CNN tells them, a network that has repeatedly praised the former president then they must not understand anything in the world today.

With all due respect, I don’t think that the Black population IS waking up to the Bullshit they have been fed for years and years. The Biden Socialist are Puppets on a string by Hussein Obama, so this is really Obama’s 3rd. Term. He and his clan have gone so Radical we are loosing our country on an hourly basis .

It was “Black” America, along with self-loathing White American Socialists that put that Manchurian Candidate in Office in the first. And don’t kid yourselves, those who voted for Biden knew full well the he was a “place holder” and a puppet fir Obama.

Hey, Obama — the only thing “clear” to you is the color of your skin. YOU are the reason for this great racial divide our country is going through at this moment! YOU and your Mrs, who only ever wanted to live in the White House for the fame and the wealth it would bringl and begin the racial divide! And mr Obama — did you know black is not a color? So why are you and others included in the cover of “people of color?” Can you riddle me that? 🙁

Good response, bonavajo! In an art class I took years ago, we learned that neither white nor black are technically considered to be colors. White is not defined as a color because it is the sum of all possible colors. Black is not defined as a color because it is the absence of light, which is required to create color, as you probably know. So it occurred to me a while back that “people of color” is a misnomer in the case of Black people, even though the term was originated for them. Not that it matters to anyone, of course, just a little bit of trivia from me. 🙂

Daily we are learning that what Democrats and their media claimed were ‘Trump’ lies were in fact the truth. Mainstream media has been desperately trying to NOT report these facts. The China virus VERY likely DID come from the Wuhan lab, hydroxychloroquine DOES WORK and likely could have SAVED THOUSANDS of lives if Fauci and the press had not LIED about it, President Trump had NOTHING to do with clearing Lafayette Square and two they are still ignoring, the declassified documents from the Mueller report proved the WHOLE investigations was planned and based around information the FBI and the DOJ KNEW was fake from the beginning, and Hunter’s laptop admissions that Joe was part of his power/ money grab.
Obama believes that the majority of Americans are ignorant enough to believe him, to believe that mainstream media doesn’t lie for him and the leftists who control our government—WRONG!

I get flagged quite often, George, and the “awaiting for approval.” That “awaiting for approval” verbiage makes it pretty clear that their censors are from another country because in America we don’t say it that way. We say either, “waiting for approval,” or a “awaiting approval.” Regardless, the censoring is surprising given that this website caters to conservative Trump supporters who believe in the First Amendment! 🙁

The three worst President’s in history:
Joe Biden (D)
Barak Hussein Obama (D)
Jimmy Carter (D)
Democrats all three!
BO makes no more sense when he speaks today than his years in the Whitehouse. He has a “need” to over compensate and tries to sound like a intellectual which makes him completely transparent, too bad he did not govern with transparency! What he did best was set back race relations to the 1950’s &1960’s and birth BLM, antifa, NFAC, etc. which are still decimating cities all around the country, oh and I almost forgot the “cancel culture” and the “woke” generation.

All three of these hypocrite, double standard practicing, pseudo elite Dems have publicly made out of line hurtful statements and lies to boot about Republicans! Comments made by BO and JB are all over the internet, you may have to research JC online! You should remember when you state inaccurate words there are always people who know better whether or not they call you out!
