Netanyahu: Obama has 'Incestuous Relationship' with Media
President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu had a light-hearted moment when Obama introduced his chief foreign policy speechwriter Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. Pointing at Rhodes, Obama said to Netanyahu, "Just remember that anything offensive that I say, it's because of him." Obama then pointed out that Ben's brother, David, runs CBS News and has a "proud Jewish mother."
Netanyahu quipped, "It sounds like a very incestuous relationship,"
"Not if you watch CBS News," Obama retorted.
The comment is even more true than Israeli PM Netanyahu may have intended...
