Obama's attempt at silencing fox news ain't working
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/10 … interview/
The very thing Obama is fighting to stop, Seclusion by class, is the very thing he does in reverse! Good Grief.
I mean Black people excluded as poor, Fox excluded as Right Wing beligerant...Executives excluded from Pay right, high or not?
He needs to make up his mind. Is he going to Be the President for "ALL" like he told us in his speach?
You gotta wounder, does he have the stomach for this office, and the critisisums that come with the territory, or is he all about something else.
His real self is comming out I think
That's the first good thing I have heard about the media in a long time!
Ain't it? Why would a President go after a news organization to begin with? Does he really think he is above criticism? Sadly, I think he does.
The media loves presidents...they elect them, then dismantle them! This is definitely encouraging.
This is a little plug for myself, but Obama has an agenda to silence Fox, while Msnbc is his darling. Msnbc's CEO, Immett is on Obama's financial advisory board, can you say conflict of interest?
I don't think they should be shut up, but Fox News is really more of an opinion channel than a news channel. I have to admit that "fair and balanced" always makes me snicker when I hear it - I don't know what sort of self-delusion their "newspeople" are practicing to say that with a straight face. Most seem to enjoy talking over their guests in the clips I've seen.
Its obvious he doesn't have a clue what happens on Fox.
Still waiting for a (major) media outlet that isn't opinion, but then again I'm still hopeful that Microsoft will create a good product besides DirectX.
Ever the eternal optimist, I know.
I don't have a problem with opinion on opinion shows, that kinda the point, but when you refuse to cover stories because it makes a politician look bad then you shouldn't be able to call it news!
Exactly. You've just described Fox News during the Bush era.
They are all registered as "news entertainment companies". One is no different from another. It's a liability thing.
Really? I saw plenty of opinion that ran contrary to Bush on these opinion shows, I saw many guests that were allowed to speak out against the Bush administration, I don't think someone who admits to seeing only "clips" of these programs should be taken as an expert on FoxNews!
I'm with you on that. All the Tea Parties and the lack of coverage there was pretty disappointing, unless you like to watch the gamut and hit a channel called FOX.
I think it's pretty interesting how the leftwing media has tried and tried again to knock down the only "rightwing" competitor. I guess it's hard to keep the only decent game in town down.
You should probably watch it before making foolish statement like this. I just love it when people criticize without having all the facts. I mean if we were to do that about our President wouldn't we say he is a cocaine addict whose marriage is on the brink of failure?
I just took two small excerpts from his book and judged him by that...much the same way as so many know-it-alls judge an entire network by one or two clips taken out of context.
Didn't I make it clear that I've seen clips of their shows? (Not just a couple) You don't have to watch it 24/7 to get a clear impression of how things work there.
The media should rally around Fox, if the government were successful in taking down Fox, and that's a big IF, any one of those media stations could be next.
I wasn't aware that I would have to be a daily watcher to be able to form an opinion about it.
Are you an expert on everything you share an opinion on here?
You would need to watch a little more than clips from another cable news network to form an informed opinion, and by your own admission that is all you know about FoxNews.
Well, that's a matter of opinion, isn't it?
At any rate, I'd love to see an objective study of the various news/entertainment networks' biases. My suspicion is that CNN is the least biased, because right-wingers accuse it of having a left-wing bias and left-wingers accuse it of having a right-wing bias.
I think it's interesting to watch the market at work. The other news organizations aren't covering the stories about this administration and Fox is. While this has attracted the ire of the President and all of his men, more and more Americans are tuning into Fox. This is exactly how a free market protects the customer. You have to give people what they want, in this case real reporting, if you want to compete effectively for ad dollars. If you can do that, people will flock to you.
This also shows how self-interest can protect industries and the customers of those industries. While the other news agencies may have ideological issues with Fox they understand Ben Franklin's saying "We must all hang together or assuredly we shall all hang separately". The news networks proved the timeless wisdom of that adage this week.

With claims of being the "Fair and Balanced" take on reporting and the #1 news network in the nation, are we to believe they have a corner on the truth and spin because of their ratings?
