Obama White House Whines & Tells CNN They Are Punishing FOX NEWS for Dissent



Just how thin skinned is this Obama White House? Just how pathetic is this White House that they must complain about one news outlet while CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC all carry the water for this administration? Chris Wallace from Fox News Sunday recently made a comment that he had never seen a White House that was a bigger bunch of cry babies. Looks like Chris was spot on.

White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn went on CNN and whined that FOX News did not fall in and lock-step with the other liberal MSM. How comical is this that she goes on a complicit CNN to complain about Fox. If this Obama White House had any guts they would go on FOX News and make these claims.

Isn’t it amazing that President George W. Bush managed to go on all the liberal media outlets that were unkind to him? Why is it that Barack Obama can’t seem to find it in himself to face criticism?

 “Let’s not pretend they are a news network like CNN is.”

How amazing is it that White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn brings up the fact that FOX treated ACORN as a major story during the election in 2008. Like that was a bad thing? It would appear in retrospect that FOX News was ahead of the media curve.

I guess the cracking of ACORN by Fox News along with Andrew Breitbart, James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. A story that the so-called journalists and MSM that this White House so loves never bothered to cover until they had to. If it were not for Fox News and the Internet covering the ACORN story, Congress would never have voted to defund this criminal enterprise, or the US Census severing ties. But of course the Obama White House is unaware of this because Obama never followed the story closely.

White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn might also want to be asked whether it was FOX News and Glen Beck that exposed Green job Czar Van Jones and forced his resignation while all of the MSM sat on their hands until they had to report that Jones resigned.

Anita Dunn  was asked whether this was the reason why Obama did not go on Fox News? The answer is YES! WHAT!!! This White House is punishing News organizations for dissent? As the Gateway Pundit states, “It’s just too bad this White House cannot point out any specific inaccuracies aired by the network”.

Time’s Michael Scherer had a piece this week about the White House’s media strategy. So what do we call a media outlet that does not challenge a President? What do we call a Presidential administration that says to the media that we will punish you if you do not toe the line? If that is the case, you are no longer media, you are propaganda.

The reality of it is that Fox News often operates as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party. And it’s not ideological. I mean, obviously there are many commentators who are conservative, liberal, centrist, and everybody understands that. What I think is fair to say about Fox is — and certainly the way we view it — is that it really is more of a wing of the Republican Party. [...]

The White House wants to call Fox News the Republican media outlet, yet Jules Crittenden provides numerous examples showing just the opposite.

      Viva Fox News and the internet…they are our best, last hope for the salvation of this country.

      of course, the news agency that brings to light the corruption of the Democrat Destruction Machine will be the reason that obama is squealing like a pig.
      poor crybabies.

      Obama punishes Fox News that what a Nobel Peace Prize winner does. The biggest mistake he could make is to go to war with the Fox News. Hugo Chavez, punishes his media also.

      The media today is a complete circus.

      a time-honored and unspoken tradition in journalism is to label fact-reporting as such and opinion as such. To purposefully disguise opinion as fact means you are propaganda. And that is what Fox is. Are there others out there? To be sure. But it behaves more like a disease in other organizations. At Fox it seems to be the entirety of the organism.

      As long as whine works better than — efforts related to deserve..whine it is. Puts an extra card in play as long as fools allow it.

      Obama is definitely an Enemy of State.

      There are no gray areas.

      As our weak el Presidente likes to say:

      I don’t care what color you are.

      Obama is not your buddy! He’s here to bring
      dramatic changes to the USA that you and your families grew up in.

      By their fruits ye shall know them. It is simple
      to see it, yet some never will.

      I remember when there was an argument about patriotism before the Iraq war. Now the president is being accused of whining. How patriotic is that? The thing about conservatives is that they say one thing and do the opposite. All the rules change as soon as the opposition gains power. Is there any clearer indication of a bankrupt ideology?
      SM: What are you talking about?

      Can you not understand the difference between the whining coming directly from the White House about how they are being covered?

      The very idea that they called Fox News propaganda while going on a CNN news outlet that was doing their bidding, ie propaganda is the issue. DUH!!!

      You LEFTIES want to talk about a bankrupt ideology? Get a clue. And buy a vowel to while you are at it.

      BTW, isn’t the liberal argument now … fi you don’t agree and march in lockstep with Obama, you are a racist? Hmm?

      we are very lucky to have Fox since it is the only network that tells the truth. dermocrats simply cannot tell the truth and will not answer a direct question.
      democrats squirm and fidget and beat around the bush when asked a direct question about healthcare reform. this indicates that we will be screwed and they know it. this plan will not work and will have to be scrapped if passed. the crats have promised this to those who helped them in this criminal takeover of America and can’t lose face and will do it even at the price of the well being of family and friends. shameful bastards.
