According to a new book by Mother Jones reporter David Corn, President Obama blames Fox News for perpetuating the idea that he is a Muslim, costing him the white male vote. “... Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in ... The Republicans have been at this for 40 years,” Obama reportedly said. "They have new resources, but the strategy is old." Corn's book, Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party focuses on the Obama administration between the 2010 midterm elections and the 2012 campaign, the Arab Spring, the repeal of “don't ask, don't tell,” the debt ceiling near-shutdown, and other tensions between the president and Congress.
