Fox News accuses President Obama of using anything — including the killing of Osama bin Laden — as a distraction from the economy, except when he’s trying to distract from his “scandals.”

And the right hates when anyone points out that Fox News — their reality show for people who hate reality — is just a propaganda machine created to undermine liberal governance. Unfortunately for them, the president himself called attention to this unassailable fact in his interview with Bill O’Reilly before the Super Bowl.
