Fox Nation's Reaction To Obama Is On The "Wrong Side Of History"

Blog ››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI

During this afternoon's edition of Studio B, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith reacted to President Obama's announcement that he supports marriage equality by commenting: "The President of the United States, now in the 21st century."

Smith also wondered if "in this time of rising debts and medical issues and all the rest, if Republicans would go out on a limb and try to make this a campaign issue while sitting very firmly, without much question, on the wrong side of history on it."

Smith's colleagues at Fox Nation certainly took issue with Obama's announcement. The Fox News website reacted to Obama's statement with the banner headline: "OBAMA FLIP FLOPS, DECLARES WAR ON MARRIAGE."

Within an hour after posting that headline, Fox Nation revised its headline. It now reads, "OBAMA FLIP FLOPS ON GAY MARRIAGE."
