Robert F. Kennedy Jr has said he believes conservative media outlet Fox News is damaging the country.

"Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News," he told HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps. "It's divided our country in a way that we haven't been divided probably since the Civil War, and its empowered large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United State Congress elected -- the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party."

When asked his thoughts on how the political landscape has changed he said "the right wing control of the American media, starting with Fox News" was hurtful to collaboration between the two political parties.
