Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher On Obama Terror Alert Critics: ‘Shut The Fox Up’

Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher joined Cenk Uygur on Current TV Monday night to discuss the political controversy emerging from the worldwide terror alert issued by the Obama administration over the weekend. Christopher debated Uygur over what could have possibly prompted the alert, and had some choice words for Fox News getting up in arms about how weak Obama has made the U.S. look: “Shut the Fox up.”

Uygur said “Obama’s going the full Bush” using the “dirtiest trick” the former Republican president had up his sleeve: terror alerts. While Christopher acknowledged “some of this is bullcrap,” he said it’s hard to discount the seriousness of something that resulted in so many embassy closures and that’s even being backed up by Congressional Republicans. He told Uygur he might want to “slow down a little bit” with the Bush-Obama comparison.

Uygur also brought up the “ridiculous Fox News reaction” to the terror alert, which allowed them to simultaneously tout NSA surveillance and slam Obama for being weak. Christopher’s take was to the point: “Shut the Fox up.” He said Fox complained once that “Obama was killing too many terrorists” and have been all over the place attacking him, asking “What have they ever been right about?”
