The tide is turning on the president let's bring in Tim Graham from the Media Research Center Tim.
Look this is opinion of -- and I think that the media in lockstep adoration of the president.
I think that's coming to an end what -- you.
I would say that there is appear it right now after Politico did this article saying Obama the puppet master what a masterful manipulator the press and now we've had sort of this.
