>>> and we are back. roger ailes i think needs to take a good look in the mirror, because in an interview with the new republic, the fox news ceo accuses president obama of what? stirring up hate? now i know where hannity gets his material. his quote is this. the president likes to divide people into groups. he is too busy getting the middle class to hate rich people , blacks to hate whites. he is busy trying to get everybody to hate each other. yes, roger ailes said all of that. the same roger ailes who perfected the dog whistle politics of the southern strategy working for richard nixon . the same roger ailes who built a channel dependent on convincing viewers it's okay to hate the opposition, a channel that relentlessly promoted the myth that president obama , our first african- american president , is a foreign-born socialist. a channel that employed the likes of glenn beck and sarah palin . where are they now? a channel that says we're on the brink of a civil war between makers and takers. a channel that claims that liberals have declared a war on religion and marriage and christmas, a channel that vilifies union members, undocumented workers in this country, and women seeking contraception coverage. the mastermind behind fox news thinks president obama has a divisive agenda? it's no wonder fox news has hit a record low in ratings and credibility. tonight in our survey, i asked you, will republicans drive our economy into another recession? i was going to say into the toilet. 94% of you say yes. 6% of you say no.
