I would disagree. Obama wasn't talking about the conservative ideology on its own. The interview characterized Fox, in the White House's opinion, "the communications arm of the republican party." (although that characterization wasn't directly spoken by Obama-those words were from Anita Dunn- but they were summarized as Obama making no concessions in that regard, meaning he agreed with them.) What you are now doing is downplaying the obvious political slant the interview has. Obama said "I don't like Fox News because they promote the views that disagree with my own-namely being politicians who are running against me... Not only that, it's not that I simply don't like them, I think they're destructive to the US." But pro-administration media outlets get a pass. At no point does his opinion actually address the specific issues though, or focus on general problems with objectivity. In other words, it's not his fault things aren't going smoothly, he's only the President. It's that Fox is so partisan. Except Fox News isn't an elected position, the executive is.
