Obama blames the media for exaggerating ISIS threat

Obama blames the media for exaggerating ISIS threat

The Five on FOX

Ezra Klein: The media, sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism and this kind of chaos as opposed to a longer term problem like climate change or epidemic diseases?

Barack Obama: Absolutely, and I don’t blame the media for that. What’s the famous saying about local news casts, if it bleeds, it leads. Right? You show crime stories and you show fires. Because that’s what folks watch. It’s all about ratings. And, the problems of terrorism and disfunction and chaos along with plane crashes and other things. That’s the equivalent when it comes to covering international affairs.

Wild Thing's comment.........

There he goes again blaming someone else. He really makes me sick!!!!

I didn't know climate change was beheading people and setting them on fire.

It looked like Ezra Klein had a 2x4 tied on to his butt so he wouldn't fall in while kissing Obama's.
