Whenever the subject of cable news is brought up, it must be remembered what David Frum said about Fox News...

David Frum Says GOP Has Been Fleeced And Lied To By Conservative Media

www.youtube.com

Top Conservative, David Frum in his recent appearance on Morning Joe, blasted what he called the "conservative entertainment complex" that has "fleeced and exploited and lied to" Republicans for money and ratings.

What Frum was presumably alluding to was the fact that outlets like Fox and talk radio focused on inflaming issues over birth certificates and Sandra Fluke and "You didn't build that," while the real issues such as taxes, the deficit and social programs became obscured.

Frum is right. Fox News spent four years building a narrative of President Obama as a failure whose loss in the 2012 Election would be easy to foretell.

They dredged up every bit of dirt they could, mostly from irrelevant gossip or from their own hope they could find something bad, and spent his first term throwing things at the President, hoping they could get one to stick.

Nothing was too petty.

Whether it was his birth certificate, his college transcripts and grades, his passport, his professors, Jeremiah Wright, Fast & Furious, Joe Sestak, Solyndra, Benghazi, etc.
