    re's a curious turn in the White House vs. Fox News fight.

    On Monday, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow were among several people who attended an off-the-record briefing with Pres. Obama at the White House. Sources tell us other attendees at the two-and-a-half hour chat included Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post, Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, Gwen Ifill of PBS and Gloria Borger of CNN. Perhaps not surprisingly, no one from Fox News was in the room.

    This fact quickly turned into ammunition for the folks at FOX. Last night on "Special Report," Bret Baier revealed the information pointing out that opinion hosts from one channel were being invited to a briefing with the Commander-in-Chief, all the while Fox was declared not a news organization.

    And it continued on Fox & Friends this morning, as the troika talked about the back-and-forth ABC News White House correspondent Jake Tapper had with press secretary Robert Gibbs in the morning off-camera gaggle yesterday.

    They're not opinion shows, they're "hard news". Just ask the Obama nation.

    Distraction perhaps?

    The economy is in the tank ... but there's a fight going on with FOX News!
    The situation in Afghanistan is getting worse .. but there's a fight going on with FOX News.
    A public option and healthcare reform .. but there's a fight going on with FOX News.

    Please feel free to add to the list.

    Oh they're just jabbing at Republicans, pushing your buttons. Seems to be working.

    Rs can either show some respect or stay on the outside looking in.

    Obama knows who is drinking the Koolaid and needs to nurture those relationships. Nixon had an enemy list as well.

    How did that turn out?

    And what about all the independent voters who tune into FOX News? Hmmm?
    Just because someone watches FOX, doesn't mean they are a Republican.
