    I guess the RNC now represents all conservatives and fact checking is I guess just a Republican ideal.

    What's it say about an Administration that blacklists news organizations because they fact-check, and then warns other news organizations to not do the same?

    It says they're small time -- this is something that may work in a Chicago district playing to a particular voter base, but looks sophomoric and silly on the national stage. Bottom line is, Fox ratings for their non-news is skyrocketing and they're biggest PR advocate?

    The White House.

    It's too bad that the Obama Administration doesn't realize that by giving attention to a single news network they only legitimize many of the things that are being said about them. One would think that a Presidential Administration would have far bigger fish to fry.

    and The Obama reacts by not making administration officials available to FNC -- and then follows up by 'encouraging' other news organization from 'following' FNC.
    Now you're changing the facts.

    The WH is encouraging other news outlets to not identify FNC as a true 'news' broadcaster... Which it isn't.

    It's painful for FNC and its apologists to finally be called out on 'Fair and Balanced'--the most ironic slogan in the history of broadcasting...

    Again, get over it.




    Correct me if I am wrong -- isnt "fact checking" the very thing a news organization is SUPPOSED to do?
    You're not wrong--just in denial about how Fox presents information.

    Hannity/Beck are not fact-checkers... they are spin propagandists who present information from a certain point of view.

    The FNC morning show is moronic--but rich housewives eat that crap up.

    O'Reilly is right-of-center, sometimes embarrassed by his own network.

    Greta married a scientologist.

    They got caught promoting the tea-parties as their own... Jeez, how can you be so obtuse about this???

    It's a tough pill to swallow, but you really should watch Outfoxed (with a grain of salt) to get better informed about what news is and isn't and how Fox operates....

    You really sound pretty stupid when you run off at the mouth not knowing the history of the network and Roger Ailes.

    Murdoch found an untapped market during the Clinton days and capitalized on it. Smart business and marketing. NOT NEWS!

    Do you have anything of substance that refutes the story, or are you just going to bash FNC?

    Yes... I'll 'get over' an Administration blacklisting a news organization for doing its job.

    Keep drinking that kool-aid.
