Watch Fox Blame Obama

Media Matters:

Kilmeade suggests Obama could have prevented the incident by "calling 1-800-Turkey." On the June 2 broadcast of Fox News' Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade said "the question, of course, is could the administration have headed off this confrontation by calling up 1-800-Turkey, you're my ally, do me a favor don't send your flotilla over here, it'll be nothing but trouble because the Israelis are not letting -- not going to let you in, there's a confrontation that's going to happen." At the end of the segment, co-host Steve Doocy read from Michael Goodwin's New York Post column.

Beck uses Bill Ayers and Code Pink's Jodie Evans to suggest that the Obama administration is connected to the Gaza flotilla incident. From the June 1 edition of the Glenn Beck Program:

BECK: The alert now is that Jodie Evans from Code Pink was over in Egypt to deliver humanitarian aid to Hamas-run Gaza, to mark the one-year anniversary of Israel's response, blah, blah, blah. Also, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, both former terrorists with Weather Underground, also joined her in Cairo. They are connected to the Free Gaza Movement, which is the movement that the ship is involved with.

We're at the point where Fox treats Obama like the UN treats Israel. Whatever happens, blame Obama. No proof necessary. I wonder why the hasbarah bloggers aren't objecting to the notion that Obama controls Netanyahu. It offends me, to hear people describe Israel as a weak vassal state. Has there been a RW objection to this Fox trope?
