This White House simply cannot take anything less than unmitigated genuflection towards their administration. They throw tantrums and start whining like babies without their pacifiers if someone has a disagreeable word about the littlest thing they say or do.
FOX News has the fairest coverage of all the news stations out there. Barack Obama is just upset that FOX's anchors don't get tingles up their legs whenever he spews his platitudinous and nonsensical talking points, and they don't treat him like Socrates when he gives a largely incoherent speech on an issue as vital as health care for an entire hour.

It seems, rather, that it is Fox News throwing a tantrum and whining like a baby. I wonder when we can expect Chris Wallace's countdown til Obama interview clock to come back?
As to the WH that can't anything less than unmitigated criticism, would we be talking about the Nixon WH? Or possibly the Bush WH:
(snip ... ) It was, after all, George W. Bush who became the first modern president to refuse literally every interview request from the New York Times over the span of nine years. The NYT's Sheryl Gay Stolberg explained about a year ago, "[Bush] White House officials are quite open about the fact that we have not gotten an interview because they don't like our coverage."
... For that matter, the Bush White House went after NBC News in May 2008, accusing the network of deceptive editing and blurring the lines between "news" and "opinion." Officials from the Bush team began treating NBC and MSNBC as political opponents.

Nice to see we have a lot of regular Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews viewers here critiquing Fox.
I saw a great speech by Obama, at the Point's of Light conference, a Public TV show about Joan Baez and a taste of Fox News.
Yes, I am a great fan of President Barack Obama. I don't watch Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman. I read my news.
