Frum: Fox News Has an Interest in Making People Angry

frumcnn_4-4.jpgOn CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” WaPo’s Howie Kurtz asked David Frum about his comment that “Republicans originally thought that Fox worked for us and now we’re discovering we work for Fox.”

The former George W. Bush speechwriter told Kurtz:

What that means is that Fox, like Limbaugh, has an interest in pushing the Republicans to the margins, making people angry. When people are angry and alienated, they don’t vote. They succumb to feelings of helplessness. What people need right now are feelings of power, that they can make a difference by participating in politics.

Frum was on to discuss his recent dismissal from the American Enterprise Institute.
