Obama, MMFA Senior Fellow? POTUS whines about ‘fake balance’ in news


Oh, the irony! In an interview with New Republic, President Obama bemoans “fake balance” in news reporting. No, really.

These Twitter users agree, but not in the way Stompy Foot Obama meant.

LOL agree for once MT @daveweigel Obama: Fake balance is one of the biggest problems we’ve got in how folks report about Washington

@daveweigel I agree.Reporters read Obama’s talking points, rarely investigate the talking points and then move on to weather.Balance.

Balance? Is this what President Obama means by balance?

“Balance” for Obama is erasing his opposition so he has no obstruction to getting what he wants.How totalitarian of him.

Indeed. President Obama should add another title to his  resumé: Senior Fellow in Chief.
