When Americans are asked to assess television news coverage of Barack Obama, Fox News Channel stands out from other networks for being too critical of the president. Nearly three-in-ten (29%) select Fox when asked which of six broadcast and cable news networks have been too critical of the new Democratic president, a far greater share than any other network. In contrast, no one TV network is singled out for being too easy on Obama.
It's good to know that many Americans see right through Roger Ailes and the home network he's developed for the GOP. Obviously the word "critical" has a different meaning to FOX than it does to most of us. We will criticize certain policies the Obama administration proposes, but FOX spreads lies and smears. At least Americans do understand what FOX is up to.
