Sorry to burst bubbles but Fox Newscasters are also members of the media.

I know where the notion came from that they weren't, though. Countless newscasters on Fox mention the "liberal, leftist media" and obviously, their angle is that they aren't also members of this selective media.

They are, though.

Honestly though (and I'm a registered Republican, by the way), I always wondered why the media didn't report on a lot of the negative aspects of the Bush administration that I thought should be reported. I wondered why Reagan's administration hasn't been tarred and feathered for a few events that should have been covered, etc. It's normal.

Don't think this is Obama alone - the media (Fox News included) has the job of also entertaining the masses and in our ADD society, they only lightly graze over many topics and avoid others altogether.

All part of the friggin AGENDA. Which i am mroe then sure the media is part of, they are part of the problem with Obama anyways, they put the Man on a freaking Pedestal and he surely does not need to be there, he is not one iota different then any other President we have had, just WORSE in every possible way. If Obama is SUCCESSFUL, you surely could of fooled me and so many others.We are in by no means in a Successful Economy, or Employment, or Housing Situation, health care, and the list go's on. This President is in no way at all, any more Special then other Presidents we have had.

You can tell Obama not a US citizen by the way he screws up everything he touches.

^This. To say that Obama's failures are not reported is ludicrous! And not just by Faux, but to a greater or lesser degree by talk shows, internet sites, magazines, newspapers- you name it. Anyone who cannot easily find reporting about Obama's failures must live on another planet.
