Fox’s Kimberly Guilfoyle made a point on The Five today that isn’t likely to sit well with everyone. She claimed that when it comes to President Barack Obama, the mainstream media only reports the good stuff.
“President Obama has enjoyed, really, like, a fairy-tale romance with the mainstream media,” she said. “He’s the one that really hasn’t had a full fact-checking and what-not. He’s actually had, I think, quite a relationship, a nice eight years with the press, with the exception of him calling out and having a problem with the Fox News Channel because we’re actually reporting all of the news instead of just select positive stories. You’ve got to talk about actually what’s going on everywhere.”
There are plenty of examples of media figures going after Obama, of course.
Here is Tom Brokaw criticizing Obama for bad optics and here is Brooke Baldwin doing the same thing, but for a totally separate incident. Here is Mika Brzezinski taking him to task for his handling of ISIS. For good measure, here is liberal icon Michael Moore saying decidedly unkind things about the President.
She went on to say that President-elect Donald Trump has had the exact opposite treatment. She sees Obama as getting only positive coverage and Trump as getting unfavorable coverage.
