    Jimmy, this might be a good time to add information that you obviously don't have, and it will same you the embarrassment of posting silly stuff like this OP.

    Do you know why the Obama administration began it's drumbeat against Fox? Because Fox actually called them on lying!

    And they demanded that they be allowed to lie, without it being corrected! Can you beat that.

    1. Is there a reason for attacks on Fox News by this administration, other than the thin-skinned nature of this Chicago thug administration? Anita Dunn was asked exactly that by Howard Kurtz, on CNN, and she said “…we had told Chris Wallace that having fact-checked an administration guest on his show, something I've never seen a Sunday show do, and Howie, you can show me examples of where Sunday shows have fact-checked previous weeks' guests. “ http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0910/11/rs.01.html’

    2. Background? The White House sent Tammy Duckworth, assistant secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, in August, and she denied the fact that the VA suggests that vets might wish to end their lives if in a wheelchair…

    WALLACE: I want to ask you about the worksheet, page 21 in the V.A. booklet. You're a hero who, despite severe injuries, lives a full life, but you have to get around some of the time in a wheelchair yourself.
    Do you have any problem with the V.A. asking elderly veterans whether life is worth living if they have a disability, if they live in a nursing home, if they're unable to shake the blues?... why would a question — I can understand questions about if you're in an irreversible coma, do you want us to pull the plug. But why — as I asked Mr. Towey, why would you even have a question in a — in an end-of-life counseling book about if
    you're in a wheelchair, if you're living in a nursing home, does that make life worth living?

    DUCKWORTH: And let me make a correction. We've not used it since 2007 when, under the Bush administration, we decided to go ahead and revise it.

    WALLACE: ... that's just not true. The VHA put out a directive on July 2nd, 2009, and I want to put up two pages from that directive. The first one, page 8, "Primary care practitioners are responsible for giving patients pertinent educational materials, e.g. refer patients to the 'Your Life, Your Choices' module."
    And on page 9 it says, "If they request more information, patients may be directed to the exercises in 'Your Life, Your Choices.'"
    So as of July 2nd, 2009, last month, more than a month ago, V.A. health practitioners were told to refer all veterans, not just end-of-life veterans but all 24 million veterans, to this document, "Your Life, Your Choices."
    The transcript is here: Transcript: 'Death Book' Debate on 'FOX News Sunday' - FOX News Sunday | Chris Wallace - FOXNews.com

    3. So, the administration feels it is not only free to lie to the American public, but that it is the obligation of the ‘news’ media to roll over and play dead in response. And when an outlet tells the truth, and calls attention to lies, then it’s minions (read 'JimH52') go out and slander it, and convince the easily led to pile on the contumely.

    a. ““Let’s fact-check Anita Dunn, because last Sunday she said that Fox ignores Republican scandals, and she specifically mentioned the scandal involving Nevada senator John Ensign,” Wallace added. “A number of Fox News shows have run stories about Senator Ensign. Anita Dunn’s facts were just plain wrongTammy Duckworth : Kevin Trudeau Show


    Now, Jimmy, don't you feel better knowing the backstory?
    See how much you learn coming here?

    The fact is that Fox (and they are not the only one) lies. All that other stuff is just stuff.

    I wish they would pass a law that forbid politicians from lying. Wouldn't that be cool? No more politicians!

    "Oh, everybody does it!" ????

    Tinny, don't be so even handed.

    Among news outlets, Fox has been singled out by the most powerful organization in the world, the White House.
    Is this the 'hope and change that the American people voted for, or is this Chicageo thugs in typecast mode?


    1.” President Obama is working systematically to marginalize the most powerful forces behind the Republican Party, setting loose top White House officials to undermine conservatives in the media, business and lobbying worlds….

    Obama aides are using their powerful White House platform, combined with techniques honed in the 2008 campaign, to cast some of the most powerful adversaries as out of the mainstream and their criticism as unworthy of serious discussion.

    Everyone from White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel to White House Communications Director Anita Dunn has piled on Fox News by contending it’s not a legitimate news operation.
    Obama strategy: Marginalize most powerful critics - Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen - POLITICO.com

    a. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Alinsky, “Rules for Radicals,” p. 130.

    b. So a new White House strategy has emerged: rather than just giving reporters ammunition to "fact-check" Obama's many critics, the White House decided it would become a player, issuing biting attacks on those pundits, politicians and outlets…"It's opinion journalism masquerading as news," [Anita] Dunn says.” Calling 'Em Out: The White House Takes on the Press - TIME


    Then well meaning, but not particularly bright folks, like Jimmy, actually belive the hype...


    2. Let’s recall another President who behaved this way

    “What was different about Colson and Dean’s effort, though, was the open declaration of war upon anyone who seemed to disagree with administration policies. Colson later expanded his list to include hundreds of people, including Joe Namath, John Lennon, Carol Channing, Gregory Peck, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Congressional Black Caucus, Alabama Governor George Wallace. All this came out during the Watergate hearings. You could see an administration spiraling downwards, and, of course, we all know where that led.

    The only reason I mention this is because I have an uneasy feeling only 10 months into this new administration that we are beginning to see the symptoms of this same kind of animus developing in the Obama administration.

    According to Politico, the White House plans to “neuter the United States Chamber of Commerce,” an organization with members in almost every major community in America. The chamber had supported the President’s stimulus package and defended some of his early appointments, but has problems with his health care and climate change proposals.

    The White House communications director recently announced that the administration would treat a major television network, FOX News, as “part of the opposition.” On Sunday, White House officials were all over talk shows urging other news organizations to boycott Fox and not pick up any of its stories. Those stories, for example, would include the video that two amateur filmmakers made of ACORN representatives explaining how to open a brothel. That is a story other media managed to ignore until almost a week after Congress decided to cut ACORN’s funding."

    The only difference was those other thugs weren't from Chicago.

    This was not a defense. It was added evidence against FOX. Are you kidding?
