RFK Jr: Right Wing in Control of American Media

The metallic purity of the family silver spoon is in question, because RFK Jr. somehow got lead poisoning from it long ago:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr told HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps in an interview Friday that he believes conservative media outlets such as Fox News are damaging the country.

Asked how he thought things have changed in the political landscape, Kennedy pointed to “big money” and “the right wing control of the American media, starting with Fox News” as hurtful to collaboration between differing political interests.

“Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News,” Kennedy told HuffPost Live. “It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War, and its empowered large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United State Congress elected — the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party.”

Seventy-eight percent of Americans using CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, PBS and Current as their primary sources of television news is completely unacceptable — the media will not be truly balanced until 100 percent of Americans get their television news from CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, PBS and Current.

We have MSNBC hosts visiting the White House to offer policy advice to a president who was just re-elected, but Fox News is having too great an influence over American politics? That RFK Jr. is a funny guy. Well, when he doesn’t want to charge “climate change deniers” with treason he is anyway.
