It’s become something of a joke with this administration — whenever there’s a problem, it’s always someone else’s fault.
This time, President Obama is blaming the media for stoking fears of ISIS, The Hill reported Monday morning. It’s not the fact that ISIS militants are murdering everyone in sight, it’s the media…
The Hill reported:
Obama blamed the media in part for fears, saying that in the past month “all you have been seeing, all you have been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you.”
“The media is pursuing ratings, this is a legitimate news story. I think it’s up to the media how they want to cover this. There is no doubt the actions of ISIL are designed to amplify their power and the threat that they pose,” he added, using the administration’s preferred acronym for the terrorist group.
Obama acknowledged “a legitimate criticism” about how he and his administration have gone about its attempts to allay fears among the public following recent terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif.
The news brought about a good deal of criticism:
@thehill It's not like Barry doesn't promote gun fear or Christian fear by referencing the Crusades.

He's never been wrong in his life. It's always the other guys fault https://t.co/4C9Q6IlAZo

Obama/Hillary/Soros to blame for ISIS. Now, he blames media &/or Trump. Paris, Chattanooga, San B bring out legitimate fear. @thehill

“Part of my message over the next 14 months or 13 months that I am — remain in office is to just make sure that we remember who we are and make sure that our resilience, our values, our unity are maintained. If we do that then ISIL will be defeated,” he said.
Perhaps the appropriate amount of firepower would help as well…
