Conservative Media Complain About Michelle Obama’s Oscars Appearance

Conservative Media Complain About Michelle Obama's Oscars Surprise

Conservative media wasted no time complaining about first lady Michelle Obama's presentation of the best picture Oscar during Sunday night's Academy Awards.

Soon thereafter, Twitter users created the hashtag #NextMichelleObamaAppearance, with suggestions for where the first lady will next appear. Examples included “Announcing the next pope,” “Driving the pace car at Indy 500 “ and “Writing a ‘Dear Abby’ column that will be required to be carried by all newspapers.”The criticism began almost immediately. Newsman Steven Gregory of KFI-AM, a Los Angeles talk station that carries Rush Limbaugh's syndicated show, tweeted that “when Michelle Obama was introduced by Jack Nicholson most of the reporters in the media groaned … loudly.” (THR staffers in the press room didn't notice a mass groan.)

Talk radio hosts took to the airwaves, largely taking the position that the Oscars should have been an Obama-free zone. The gist: Hollywood’s reputation for liberalism is well known, so why rub it in the faces of GOP moviegoers?
