The mouthpieces at Fox are still wondering why President Obama didn’t call on their network for a question during last week’s press conference. Well, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz has broken it down for them: Fox’s problem is that it is not a real news network, and it should stop expecting to be treated like one.

Schultz may have a decent argument had Fox News never been called on. But the fact is, they have, so why make yourself look like a fool by speaking in absolutes Ed?

You know, if the fine folks at City-Data wanted an excerpt of every Kos or HuffPo article posted, without any comments whatsoever, the functionality already exists in vBulletin to do just that. Nobody needs (or wants) you doing it for them. Maybe if you had something to add, but you're just an RSS posting robot, Duke. You never expand on the excerpt or add any thoughts of your own. Why bother?

I think Schultz did a good job on painting Faux as a noncredible news organization and we all know that it isn't. Schultz never stated that Faux had never been called on in the past but he did frame that piece of Jarret asking that laughable question about China and world currency. Obama''s expression was memorable... Almost as if he couldn't believe the moronic question Jarret had asked....

And you believe that this thing you complain about is rare on this board?

Your complaint would have some tiny measure of legitimacy if you complained about the righties doing it as well.

Not true, I do add my opinions at times... Maybe not all the time but some of the time...
