Did Hell just freeze over? Helen Thomas just sided with Fox News!!!
Hey Barack Obama … you know you having a losing strategy when you have Helen Thomas, the NY Times, The Nation and other liberal media outlets against you in your battle with Fox News.
Nice cake Barack, but could ya quit this nonsense with Fox News before we you are not only eating cake, but crow as well.
Politics, and in this case the media makes strange bed fellows. Helen Thomas, yes that same Helen Thomas has made her voice be heard to the Obama White House … back off Fox News and stay out of the fight. It is pretty bad when even those in the liberal media see this Obama strategy as a loser. Ultimately, the MSM knows that Obama could be a “One and Done” President, what will happen in a new administration when the shoe is on the other foot?
Well, it’s not the first time the Grande Liberal Dame of the press corps has had words for the Obama White House, but today Helen Thomas is voicing more unlikely sentiments by telling the White House attack dogs to heel in the Fox News fight.
In an interview with MSNBC, the columnist — who is promoting her new book on presidents and their campaigns — also stressed the White House ought to “stay out of these fights.”
“They can only take you down. You can’t kill the messenger,” said Thomas, who has covered every president from John F. Kennedy to Barack Obama.
Helen Thomas tells White House not to kill the messenger because one day that messenger may just be her and her LEFT leaning cohorts in the media.
Once again it appears that Obama and his minions have misread the tea leaves. However, does anyone think that the arrogance of Obama, Axelrod and Emanuel will admit defeat? This arrogance and strong arm “Chicago-style” tactics will come back to haunt Obama dearly.
Fox News not a real news network Obama minions? Or is it just that you do not like the news they are reporting and breaking? News that your “in the tank” media friends refuse to cover … just the way Dunn stated Obama likes to control the media.
NewsBusters has Brit Humes’ take on the Obama White House attacks on Fox News.
“It is a little hard to discern a strategy behind the White House campaign of criticism of Fox News unless it’s simply this – an attempt to quarantine Fox and thereby discourage other media outlets from following up stories did originate here,” Hume said. “The White House is clearly stung by the revelations about former aid Van Jones. He turned out to have harbored views that were out there where the buses don’t run and he was forced to resign. And the White House could not much have cared for the hidden camera expose of ACORN – an organization with which the president had a past association and one whose voter registration drives have benefited the Democratic Party.”
