    On the one hand, we should celebrate the war between Fox News and the White House.

    It is a good thing President Obama & Co. are angry with Fox. It means Fox is doing its job, you know, holding the Executive Branch accountable, like a real news organization. This is good news. Traditionally in America, the Fourth Estate's role has been to challenge those in power, challenge the assumptions, examine the assertions, and check for accuracy, all the while carrying both sides of the story.

    A real news organization serves the people, acting as a check on power by informing people so they can make good decisions at the polls.

    The fact that Fox is holding Obama's feet to the fire should cause rejoicing.

    On the other hand, there are three bad news dimensions to all this: the rest of the media is content to lick Obama's boots, true to pattern Obama is glad to selfishly attack a private news organization (by the way, the most highly rated television news group in the nation), and the more Nero fiddles, the higher the flames.

    Barack Obama is happy to fight a war on Fox.





    He preaches unity with his mouth, but with his hands, he sows seeds of division.

    Half the country does not listen to fox so once more you lied in your post's thread, Willow.

    Fox is the mouthpiece for Rupert Murdock and the RNC. Funny how the talking points from Fox and the RNC are so often identical. Probably a miracle.:eusa_whistle:

    If George Soros had control of a media outlet like Murdock, your side would wet its pants complaining about how a commie was runing the news.:eusa_liar:

    I rarely watch Fox News but I'm a conservative. Explain that one rayboy.

    Also, please list for us your sources for news.

    Nothing oozes credibility like a poll and analysis from one of the farthest left nutbar sites on the interwebs. :lol:

    Wow...I'm pretty liberal about most things, but I would never argue a point about FOX being biased with a Daily KOS story.
    Just sayin...

    "War" how is this a war? The problem with the Fox Republican spin channel is their so called news is distributed from an ideological position and not found or investigated. Calling biased reports news is either lying or ignorance, neither a positive for the nation. The least the Fox republican channel could do would be to stop repeating BS when they are called out for it, but then again this is propaganda and not news so I guess we need to consider the source and motive.

    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
