Politico reported Monday that a new book by Mother Jones's David Corn claims President Obama blamed his 2010 midterm elections defeat on Fox News constantly calling him a Muslim.
Fox News's Bret Baier struck back on Monday's Special Report saying, "For the record, we found no examples of a host saying President Obama is a Muslim" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BRET BAIER: Corn also writes President Obama blamed this network for his midterm political woes. He told labor leaders he was “losing white males” because in part “fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in.”
For the record, we found no examples of a host saying President Obama is a Muslim.
Yeah, but that doesn't matter, Bret.
Corn wrote it, Politico cited it, and now it's going to be blast all over the Obama-loving media until large portions of the nation believe it.
Makes you proud to be an American, doesn't it?
