And then there’s Fox News. Even while several of their on-air personalities applauded Michelle’s speech, the network wasted no time broadcasting the Romney campaign’s talking points after the speech ended.
After Michelle Obama’s speech, Romney campaign Press Secretary Andrea Saul issued this statement: “…There was a night full of tributes to government as the solution to every problem.” For 30 minutes, Fox News commentators took turns parroting Saul’s statement, attacking Michelle Obama’s speech as being too pro-government and failing to adequately admire the contributions of the private sector. Watch:
Naturally, despite Fox News’ and the Romney campaign’s insistence that Michelle Obama cozied up to big government, the word “government” didn’t appear in her speech once while shout outs to the recovering auto industry and small businesses both made appearances.
