In recent weeks this White House has been engaged in an aggressive and vicious Smear Campaign targeting any Media Outlet which dares to criticize them. Their main target seems to be Fox News at this point. They have been producing an increasing steady stream of hateful Anti-Fox News propaganda since seizing power. Now i know all the loyal Hopey Changeys will see this as a "good" thing but many on both the Left & Right have become very concerned about these clearly premeditated daily attacks. This White House has also stepped up its attacks on Talk Radio as well. It seems that any Media Outlet that dares to criticize this White House will be immediately targeted for a White House Smear Campaign. This has many in the Press very worried. It almost seems like this White House is taking a page out of the Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro playbooks. These vicious attacks on Fox News are especially disturbing when you consider that they have actually been found by independent studies to be the most balanced Media Outlet in TV News. The CMPA (The Center for Media and Public Affairs) found that during the Election,Fox News was the most balanced in its coverage towards both parties. These results are based on a scientific content analysis of all 481 election news stories that aired on the flagship evening news shows on ABC,CBS,NBC,and Fox's Special Report with Brit Hume in the months leading up to th Election. Their study concluded that Fox News treated both parties equally as far as positive and negative coverage goes. They found that the others were much more prone to slanted coverage favoring Democrats over Republicans. So why all the vicious attacks on Fox News and Talk Radio? Well the answer seems to be pretty simple to me. These Media Outlets have actually dared to criticize this President while the rest of the MSM seems to be completely compliant and submissive. These kinds of premeditated Smear Campaigns against the Press should be disturbing to all,both on the Left and Right. Freedom of Press and Freedom of Speech seem to be under attack right now in this country and i'm a bit surprised that more people aren't outraged. Oh yes,a Cold Wind is definitely blowin in. Will this be a long bitter Winter of Discontent?
