Boehner on Bachmann: Right-wing media made ‘people who used to be fringe characters into powerful media stars’

Former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) pointed to former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) as an example of a public figure conservative media elevated from obscurity to star status during his time leading the Republican party in the lower chamber. 

“Besides the homegrown ‘talent’ at Fox, with their choice of guests they were making people who used to be fringe characters into powerful media stars. One of the first prototypes out of their laboratory was Michele Bachmann,” Boehner wrote in a Politico Magazine essay using excerpts from his book (published yesterday).
