Media mogul calls Pres. Obama "lazy" in new book

President Obama is 'Lazy' - these are the explosive comments made by Fox News chief, Roger Ailes.

Vanity Fair released an excerpt from his new biography in which Ailes says:

"Obama's the one who never worked a day in his life. He never earned a penny that wasn't public money. How many fund-raisers does he attend every week? How often does he play basketball and golf? I wish I had that kind of time. He's lazy, but the media won't report that... I didn't come up with that. Obama said that, to Barbara Walters."

Are the comments racially charged or just frank talk in the heat of the moment?

OutFront tonight: Michael Medved is a conservative commentator on Salem radio and Van Jones is a CNN contributor.
