The Bush White House never did anything like this, and we remember how harsh the Big Media was on them.
The White House is calling on other news organizations to isolate and alienate Fox News as it sends out top advisers to rail against the cable channel as a Republican Party mouthpiece.Here we go again with the Leftists accusing bearers of inconvenient truth of being "Republican Party Mouthpieces".
Hmm. Perhaps FOX News should sue the White House for malicious defamation!
Seems, however, that the Obama W.H. is being foolish and self-destructive in its despotic behavior...
Top political strategists question the decision by the Obama administration to escalate its offensive against Fox News. And as of Monday, the four other major television networks had not given any indication that they intend to sever their ties with Fox News.Huh? What are they talking about? Sounds like nothing but partisan propaganda to me.
But several top White House officials have taken aim at Fox News since communications director Anita Dunn branded Fox "opinion journalism masquerading as news" in an interview last Sunday.
White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel told CNN on Sunday that President Obama does not want "the CNNs and the others in the world [to] basically be led in following Fox."
They're attacking the messenger. They're mad that FOX News has been exposing the inconvenient truth about the Obamacrat Regime.
Let's see... there was the ACORN child-prostitution sting. There was the Van Jones scandal/resignation. There's the other "czars", equally frightening and extreme, appointed by the Regime. There's the CAIR being exposed in a book detailing an infiltration sting.
And FOX News was the first major news outlet to report on the stuff, following the New News Media's own reporting of the stuff (eg. World Net Daily, Breitbart's Big Government, etc., etc...).
It's clear that FOX News has proven itself the only Big Media News Network to do the job the Big Media is supposed to do.
The rest of the Big Old Media hasn't been doing the job, and has been reluctantly mentioning what they can't avoid mentioning, because to ignore big stories being reported by FOX and the New News Media would just make them look like Obama's lapdogs (which they ARE).
Obama senior adviser David Axelrod went further by calling on media outlets to join the administration in declaring that Fox is "not a news organization."Oh? What, then is "news", Mr. Axelrod? Only what the Regime approves for broadcast?
Now, that's silly. Just declaring that a news organization isn't a news organization, without making the case for the smear, is plainly and simply absurd, and further proves that the Obamacrat Regime can't be believed, can't be trusted.
Attacking the press for doing its job, calling them "not news organizations" for doing their jobs, is, well, not going to help the Regime.
What proof do they have that FOX News lied, that it made everything up? Why don't they offer proof?
Since when is the truth not news?
Since when is broadcasting/reporting what the People want and need to know that's bad about their government, as well as what's good about it, "not news"?
Is it only "news" when the media kisses the Regime's ass, kisses Obama's ass?
Is it not "news" when the media reports things about Obama and his Regime that aren't positive?
The Obamacrat Regime is BLACKLISTING FOX News! BLACKLISTING!!!
It's also disturbing that the Regime is upset that FOX News dared to fact-check an Adminstration official. Disturbing! And telling.
Since when is fact-checking the Administration wrong? All Big Media outlets did it to the Bush Adminstration. And the Left never complained that there was anything wrong with that, then.
Fact-checking is about getting to the truth. Which is what the newsmedia's job is. And which is what FOX does a whole lot more than its rivals, with respect to the Obamacrat Regime. And this is what the Regime can't stand. How dare FOX dis the Regime?!
More and more, the Regime is looking more and more like a dictatorship. Like Hugo Chavez's increasingly-totalitarian, national socialist regime in Venezuela.
