KENNEDY: “President Obama now blaming what he calls conservative media for creating what he says is a false picture of him and blaming its negative coverage for the drop in his poll numbers. The President telling the Atlantic, ‘In 2008 I was never subjected to the kind of concentrated vilification of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, the whole conservative-media ecosystem. If people are angry that somehow the government is failing, then they are going to look to the guy who represents government. And that applies, by the way, even to some of the folks who are now Trump supporters. They’re responding to a fictional character named Barack Obama who they see on Fox News or who they hear about through Rush Limbaugh. Charlie, I’ve said this before, I’ll say it again, you’re the brand new editor of the opinion section of ‘The Washington Times’, which some would say is editorially conservative. I feel like this president has an unnatural obsession, almost a fetish with Fox News.”

HURT: “Yeah. And I don’t think he watches it, because whatever he’s watching is not what I watch. I doubt he listens to Rush Limbaugh either. But the guy is so spoiled and he’s spoiled because he’s always had this incredibly fawning coverage throughout his career even before, you know, when he was — before he was president. And not only that, but he’s going out of office with the highest numbers of any president, and he’s still complaining.”
