I guess they need EVERY cable, broadcast, print and radio outlet let on their side to be happy.

Funny how she fails to mention MSNBC, the butt-kissers of the administration - no complaints there.

Also funny how she ignores the fact check done by CNN - on a comedy skit. That's how in the tank they are.

Whining bunch of crybabies is so applicable.

Default Battle Royale: The White House & Fox News

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/12/bu....html?_r=1&hpw

I always find media/entertainment business fascinating, and sickening.

Inevitably, the White House will lose this one.

I sure am glad Dubya didn't care about his media coverage, it would have consumed his whole life. I think Obama thinks hes more of a celebrity than the President of the United States.

The very fact the WH is whining because they don't have EVERY single news outfit in their pocket is telling. The more they complain, the more the ratings go up.

They just can't stand a news organization airing their lies, distortions and radical members of the administration.

You should never fight with someone who owns barrels of ink.

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - WH aide: Fox News operates like an arm of the GOP « - Blogs from CNN.com

Quote:
In a written statement given to CNN, Fox News said its programming was comparable to the editorial page of a newspaper.
“An increasing number of viewers are relying on Fox News for both news and opinion,” Fox News Senior VP Michael Clemente said in the statement, “and the average news consumer can certainly distinguish between the A-section of the newspaper and the editorial page, which is what our programming represents.

“So with all due respect to anyone who might still be confused about the difference between news reporting and vibrant opinion, my suggestion would be to talk about the stories and the facts rather than the attack the messenger . . . which over time has never worked.”

Conversely, the very fact that Fox continues to report 'mistakes' and 'corrections' and has 'hosts' not news anchors makes me wonder...

I listen to FOX, believe me there is a whole lot of "other stuff" mixed in with their facts, and the whining is never ending.
