Laura Ingraham Rips AP Over Thatcher Obituary: Why Doesn’t MSM Accuse Obama Of ‘Imposing His Will?’

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham tore into the Associated Press over a story featured in Mediaite on Monday which identified a reserved tone in their obituary of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher that was not present in the organization’s obituary of late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson began the segment by reading a portion of the two obituaries, noting that the AP made Chavez sound “a lot more heroic than Margaret Thatcher.”

Ingraham singled out a portion of Thatcher’s obituary which accused her of having “imposed her will on the people.”

“How many times has that been used by a quote mainstream media outlet about President [Barack] Obama?” Ingraham asked. “When it came to the executive fiat on amnesty for young people in the United States, or some of these really onerous regulations coming out of EPA or the FDA today?”

“I mean, he’s imposing his will every day to try to transform America,” she concluded.
