“Nothing that the Trump administration has done with or to the news media approaches in seriousness and nature the conduct of the Obama Administration towards the press,” James Rosen said Saturday during an interview on Fox News.
Trump has been complaining about dishonest and shoddy reporting and how damaging it is to our nation.
But Obama targeted a specific news outlet, again and again, because he didn’t like the stories they chose to cover.
- 2009: The Obama administration attempted to exclude Fox News from the White House press pool. When their effort was thwarted by the other press poolers, they lied and said they never did it at all.
- 2010: Obama told Rolling Stone Magazine that Fox News was “destructive” to the country.
- 2010: Obama blamed Fox News for reporting on the Benghazi and IRS scandals.
- 2014: Obama said Fox News was calling affordable health care a threat to freedom.
Even worse, Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, ordered Fox reporter James Rosen’s movements tracked, his phone records seized, and told Google to not notify Rosen that the government was monitoring his email.
