    gain by taking on Fox News?

    I'm trying to remember a White House that engaged in this kind of petty behavior??? I've only been paying attention to politics for about 20 years-since college, and I can't recall.

    Just goes to the quality of their mind-set. They want NO competition, no oppositional voice.

    And yet there are folks even on this board that says this WH is not Fascist.

    Go figure.

    There was a survey and it said Dems, Independents and Republicans listen to Fox daily or at least 2 times a week. Obama's ratings are falling, and he wants the conservative talk shows to go away. The more he whines, the more he looks weak.

    Osama wants things like they were in the soviet Union, where Izvestia and Pravda only told the news from the Communist party viewpoint. He doesn't like anyone reporting govt screwups.

    Just look at the thugs running this White House and you can figure out the search and destroy mission. You would have to look under a lot of rocks to find a sleazier bunch than this, Emanuel, Axelrod and the rest.. Obama would be well served to put these guys on the street but unfortunately he's a weak man and way out of his depth in this job.

    Nixon routinely went after the networks -- particularly CBS and NBC. Reagan went after what he called the elitist eastern press of newspapers (NYT and Washington Post) as well as the "liberal" network shows. GWB -- often acting through Cheney -- went after the networks and individual reporters granting or denying access based on their perception of whether or not the reporting was "fair" (i.e. supportive). When it comes to attacking the media, the Obama administration is still playing in the amateur leagues when compared to any of thse administrations.

    So you agree then that FOX is a network with a point of view then?

    Just like MSNBC and CNN. They all have a point of view. Theirs are liberal and Fox is conservative / independent.
