Thanks to Reggie [Love, the president’s personal aide], my rap palate has greatly improved. Jay-Z used to be sort of what predominated, but now I’ve got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff, but I would not claim to be an expert.
Malia and Sasha are now getting old enough to where they start hipping me to things. Music is still a great source of joy and occasional solace in the midst of what can be some difficult days.
So leave it up to the spin masters of Fox News to put on their website a headline that said:
props to pourmecoffee for catching the Fox News blunder, it seems the Obama spinning will never stop when it comes to Fox News. In the Rolling Stone piece, Obama did express his feelings toward the right leaning media outlet;
Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. We’ve got a tradition in this country of a press that oftentimes is opinionated. The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view.
Hopefully if we keep catching Fox News in the act, they will stop doing the dirt they alway do.
