Being the only news channel the Obama administration cannot control, war was declared by the Obama Administration after Fox News Sunday’s guest, Tammy Duckworth, was caught making controversial claims that did not pan out.
Mao Zedong admirer Anita Dunn said, “fact-checking an administration official was something I’ve never seen a Sunday show do.”
But fact-checking a Saturday Night Live skit is no problem?
Rahm Emanuel told CNN that President Obama does not want “the CNN’s and the others in the world to basically be led in following Fox.”
David Axelrod said, “Other news organizations like yours ought not to treat them that way. We’re not going to treat them that way,” to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
David Carr of the liberal New York Times warned that the White House war on Fox “may present a genuine problem for Mr. Obama, who took great pains during the campaign to depict himself as being above the fray of over-heated partisan squabbling.”
Democratic strategist Donna Brazile said on CNN: “I don’t always agree with the White House. And on this one here I would disagree.”
David Carr went on to say, “The administration, by deploying official resources against a troublesome media organization, seems to have brought a knife to a gunfight.”

While the resident Beaverton troll brigade will no doubt be delighted at this, don’t forget boys, it’s your free speech that may be lost too.
Obama is indecisive about reinforcing the Troops in Afghanistan, falling down on job creation and economic matters, can’t get his health care pushed through (thankfully), divided the country more than it ever has been in our entire history, makes more cmpaign speeches than any president and all he can do is attack the number one news network that doesn’t lick his boots?
Isn’t that what others did, like Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez, Saddam Hussein and a Mr. Schicklgruber?
Where did America go?
