Obama: One Of The Biggest Problems With America Is...

To Obama, one of the problems with America is that there are just too many places for people to get their news.

The president was candid in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, according to MRC's NewsBusters, and explained one of the big reasons he feels Trump won the election.

After talking about how divided America is, Obama expressed that, "The challenge is people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions. It's making people exaggerate or say what's most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies, because that attracts eyeballs."

Conservative news outlets would probably counter that sentiment by sardonically pointing out that there's no need to exaggerate when there's no lack of things to report on in Obama's divisive administration or when there's a flood of topics the mainstream media bypasses.

But apparently Obama believes that too much information outside the mainstream media is divisive.

Earlier in the interview, Obama also commented that part of the reason that so many white working class voters showed up at polls to vote for Trump is because "Fox News [is] in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country."

It is? But aside from the validity of that claim, the president again appeared to be lamenting the diversity of news coverage when one major network breaks away from the lockstep liberal march of the others.

In responding to a question about giving government subsidies to the mainstream media, especially newspapers, to keep them alive, Obama said, "if we are gonna solve that [problem of too many news sources], it's not going to be simply an issue of subsidizing or propping up traditional media; it's going to be figuring out how do we organize in a virtual world the same way we organize in the physical world."

That's a head-scratcher.

Meanwhile in North Korea, the state run Korean Central News Agency keeps things simple — by being the only news source allowed in the country.
