White House continues to berate Fox News
Let’s go over the dictator-like actions and comments made by the Obama Administration in regards to Fox News. First, allow me to emphasize the gravity and ramifications of the Office of the President attacking a news organization.
When descent (which is really what the Obama administration is complaining about) is bellyached over, attacked un-apologetically, and asked to be ignored by other media outlets (to lessen exposure), America is a lesser place. The White House is so fixated on its out of touch ideology and elitist sentiment that it has no worry or concern about trampling the constitution and enjoying every moment of it. There is something terribly disturbing about the President of the United States attacking a news channel for not bending over and kissing his royal ass, applauding his every breath, and reporting only that which makes his holiness look like gods gift to America and the world. This is dictator-like performance is right out of the playbooks of great socialists and fascists that realized smothering descent is the key to absolute rule.
Now onto the goodies.
Anita Dunn- “Fox News often operates almost as either as the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party,” “What I think is … fair to say about Fox, and certainly it’s the way we view it, is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party,”
David Axelrod- “It’s really not news,” “It’s pushing a point of view.” “Mr. Murdoch (owner of NewsCorp) has a talent for making money, and I understand that their programming is geared toward making money.”
Rahm Emanuel- “It’s not a news organization so much as it has a perspective, and that’s a different take. And more importantly, it’s important not to have the CNN’s and the others of the world being led and following Fox, as if what they’re trying to do is a legitimate news organization.”
Robert Gibbs- ” Fox news reports many stories that are not true.”
It is also important to note that the White House has banned all interviews by the Obama administration since August and will not likely continue them until next year.
In the meantime, the White House has said that it is “at war” with Fox News because they are critical of all of Obama’s policies. Interesting, the most popular news channel, airs descent and skepticism of Washington (ie. Empowering citizens=bad, empowering government=good).
