Obama White House Tries to Ban FOX News From Press Pool … MSM Backs Fox and Obama WH Backs Down


The thin skinned, baby & Chief …

Obama has finally bitten off more than he can chew and has severely over played his hand. MSM Obama_finger_in_mouthslaps Obama White House hand and Obama WH backs down. What is this president going to do when the Press turns on him?

Now this White House was going to ban a single News organization from an interview? To the LEFT, who knew hope and change meant Richard Nixon and an enemies list?

What is wrong with this White House? How childish and small, let alone Unconstitutional could they possible be? Obama’s war on FOX News has come to this game of chicken where the White House tried to bar Fox News from interviewing pay czar Kenneth Feinberg  As Hot Air states, which act of this White House is the most disgraceful? Can we choose all of the below?

Decide for yourself what the most disgraceful aspect of this is. Was it the fact that Gibbs told Jake Tapper explicitly on Monday that the White House wouldn’t try to dictate to the press pool who should and shouldn’t be included — before doing precisely that? Was it Anita Dunn going out of her way to say she respects Major Garrett as a fair reporter — before the administration decided he didn’t deserve a crack here at Feinberg? Or was it the repeated insistence by Dunn and Axelrod that of course the administration will make its officials available to Fox — before pulling the plug today?

KUDOS to the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV news networks who stepped in an agreed to skip the interview if FOX News was not included. When push comes to shove, all of the MSM is in it together no matter what party in in office.

 Obama White House gets slapped down by the MSM. Media sides with FOX News over Obama White House

Barack Obama actually complained and whined about Fox News in a secret closed door White House meeting with the so-called real media that had the likes of MSNBC’s Maddow and Olbermann present? There’s some credibility you can believe in.

As Hot Air states, I though the President was not losing any sleep over this? So then why would he assemble his MSM lapdogs together in a whine-fest? Did Maureen Dowd bring the brie? Obama doen’t lose sleep over this? Are you kidding, he is obsessed with it!

NewsBusters brings is via CNN and Anderson Cooper the unthinkable … CNN comparing Barack Obama, The One, The Obamamessiah is Richard Nixon. Wow, that’s going to leave a mark.

How do you know that the White House’s anti-Fox News campaign has gone seriously wrong? When CNN, let alone Anderson Cooper, begins to compare the Obama and Nixon administrations.

      This all has to do with Obama’s lack of respect for the office of the President. This all points to his inexperience, his arrogance and his lack of PROFESSIONALISM.

      Presidents should NOT be in wars with certain aspects of the media.

      In case anybody has not figured it out yet, Obama isn’t even running the White House. The real president is Rahm Emanuel. YIKES!

      This little kid is failing ‘Demigod School’ bigtime. It’s not
      easy trying to control the billions upon billions of details
      in America, let alone the World, or even the Universe. I
      would advise (H)e attempt to control himself first of all,
      since that is the only thing he is really in charge of or not.
      A sign that the MSM is acting positively gives me a
      fleeting shot of ‘expectancy consciousness’.

      The Axelrod-Plouffe marketing of Obama the half-radical, half-empty suit was good, but the product has been ATROCIUS!! Americans are principally consumers, and sooner rather than later there must be a decent product for Americans behind the branding, or the campaign crashes.

      The essence of the Obama way of trying to govern is to combine the marketing techniques of Axelrod with the mafia tactics of Emanuel. These tactics might be tolerated if the product was good, but if the product had ANY merit they wouldn’t be necessary!

      Resistance is futile! Run, Barry, Run!

      Perhaps the ghost of Benjamin Franklin visited the heads of the MSM and reminded them that

      “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

      Obama the Fox-hunter

      There is a wiley old Fox,
      About Obama it talks,
      “It just isn’t fair,”
      He says with a glare,
      “My feelings, it hurts, when it mocks.”

      Not that this Administration is ‘Buying Votes’, but,
      the apparently unlimited pool of money at their disposal
      is awesome. In Chicago in the 40s, it was rumored that
      you could buy a vote for $5. Again, the price of an
      important block of votes these days can run into the
      multi-millions. ACORN’s get out the vote efforts in
      support of Obowma were considerably expensive.
      One can lead a horse into the Glue Factory with a carrot
      on a string. Of course you can nudge or push the horse
      there as well. How ‘Fancy’ can you get?

      At some point, somebody in Washington is going to have to break through the scrum of Good Ol’ Thugs who are trying to run Washington like a Chicago mob scene. They are clearly encroaching on free press laws, having already breeched free speech laws. While the most radical ten percenters may think this divine, I cannot think that any true free speech advocates of any political persuasion can think this is reasonable behavior for an elected official no matter how popular they may be. Perhaps this is why Hillary is distancing herself from the White House and keeping mum as to her opinions.

      When O said he is not losing alot of sleep over Fox news, what he is really saying is that, HE IS losing alot of sleep over what Fox is saying, because why would he want Fox black balled in the first place. He is not liking what Glen Beck has to say….

    10. PA Mom on October 23rd, 2009 10:49 pm

      I think the actions of this White House and it’s staff speaks for itself. They don’t hide their arrogance. My belief in our news media and it’s desire for truth is renewed by the great acts of the Washington bureau chiefs. It’s time for them to wake up from their long sleep.

    11. Deborah on October 24th, 2009 12:22 am

      Obutt spends hours with Olderman and Madcow, but spends only 30 min with his commander in Afghanistan and only 4 hrs in New Orleans.
      It is all about him and not about what America needs. He is still campaigning, already doing 23 fund raisers, triple what most presidents do in a year.
      He has broken almost every campaign promise. Attacks the media and our constitution,
      It will be a wonder if we survive another 3 years of this let alone 7 years, God forbid.

    12. LilPuma on October 24th, 2009 10:09 am

      Surprisingly, the MSM sided with the First Amendment instead of Obama. A good start. As for Obama’s newest line, “I’m not losing sleep over it”, which I’ve heard him use before, well, I LOVE IT is all I can say to that.

      Obama isn’t obsessed he is disappointed in how the news is discouraging our belief in America by twisting what is known and not known..I believe its time for a change of channel! Many other tv shows need to be banned.
      Hey Wes, put the crack pipe down and actually learn something in school.

      The media’s job is not to be a cheerleader for government. That sould be called propaganda. Obama is pissed because his bull shit is being exposed. Obama is a typical elite, liberal who has never been told know. He is only happy and likes news orgs that agree with him? WTF!!! More than half the voters in America now disagree with this socialist fool.

      Obama and this White House is the biggest bunch of cry babies ever. This Obama house of cards is going to crumble when more and more news orgs realize that without any form of credibility, no one will tune in.

      Obama is sinking like a rock.

      Fox News is the most prejudice racist fake news ever. Controlled by corporate views and greed. They don’t cover news they cover propaganda. They should be banned from Television.
      SM: Spoken like a true liberal who is against freedom of speech. Talk about only want propaganda.

      Think about your foolish words before you actually write them. So you want news banned who in your mind is the dissent against Obama and your misguided beliefs.

      Don’t ask for things they might come true. Wait until Republicans are back in power, would you also be for the banning of MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the state run liberal MSM? HMM?

      You folks on the LEFT are just so tolerant, aren’t you.
