Bret Baier Factchecks New Obama Book: No Fox Host Has Ever Called President Obama Muslim
Fox News anchor Bret Baier took a moment today to correct President Obama‘s claim in author David Corn‘s new book that he was “losing” support from “white males” because “fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in.”
Baier took the opportunity to correct the record for his viewers.
“For the record, we found no examples of a host saying President Obama is a Muslim,” Baier concluded.
Corn’s book, Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party, describes itself as taking “the reader into the Oval Office and the back rooms on Capitol Hill for a fast-paced and gripping account of the major events as they unfolded” and capturing “the dilemmas faced by a president assailed by disappointed progressives and defiantly obstructionist Republicans determined to see his defeat.”
