For those who are wondering, here’s Obama's full quote: "If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR.”
The comment says more about what Fox chooses to cover vs. an NPR, than it does about the viewers themselves. https://t.co/e119UJodOm

Out: John Edwards’ “Two Americas.” In: Barack Obama’s “Two PLANETS.”
Not surprisingly, Obama would prefer there be just one source for news. Why? Because FACTS, that’s why:
“One of the biggest challenges to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts.” – Barack Obama

A funny concern from the president who promised “if you like your plan you can keep it,” which was awarded Politifact’s 2013 Lie of the Year distinction.
Think Obama has figured out he’s the reason we have President Trump yet? https://t.co/598vnBHulL

Is that an attack on our unassailable news media?
