Obama Lashes Out at Cable News During Prayer Breakfast


President Obama commented on the tone of politics during this morning’s National Prayer Breakfast, specifically criticizing cable news, saying “I go back to the Oval Office and turn on the cable news networks, and it’s like we didn’t pray.”

OBAMA: I have to say this now our fifth prayer breakfast and it is always just a wonderful event but I do worry sometimes that as soon as we leave the prayer breakfast everything we’ve been talking the whole time at the prayer breakfast seems to be forgotten, on the same date as the prayer breakfast – I mean you’d like to think that the shelf life wasn’t so short. I go back to the oval office and I start watching the cable news network’s and it’s like we didn’t pray. And so, my hope is that humility – that that carries over every day, every moment.
