Krauthammer: FOX News "Ought To Be Proud Of The Fact That We Annoy" Obama So Much
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I love to hear the president whine about FOX News and talk radio. I think we ought to be proud of the fact that we annoy him so much. If you look at the line-up on one side, the liberal media, you start with ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, MSNBC, the elite newspapers, the one remaining news magazine, the universities, Hollywood -- it doesn't stop anywhere. And on the other side, talk radio, FOX News. And they can't stand the fact that they no longer have a monopoly.
So, I think it ought to be taken as a compliment. What I've always said about Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, their genius was understanding and locating a niche audience in broadcast cable news, which is half the American people. The half that have suffered for decades by the fact you get the news presented from a single perspective over and over again.
Finally, the fact that there is a new perspective, talk radio and FOX, and they can't stand it. It's a source of pride, I would say. (Special Report, January 28, 2013)
