    Shhh!! You aren't supposed to point that out!

    The fact is that both sides are huge hypocrites and use whatever ammo they can to attack the other side, even if it makes them look hypocritical for doing the same exact thing. That's why I think it's silly to just paint one side with such a broad brush like TD is doing.

    Well I am sure they would probably love to bash some kneecaps instead but that wouldn't go over too well if it got national attention.

    And yeah, denying interviews and correspondence access is punishment to a news network.

    As I have consistently said, the White House has put it's self in a no win situation. They should stick to the norm of taking an interview, rebutting the "facts" presented, and move on to the next interview. There is nothing to gain from singling out specific news agencies and fighting a losing media battle with a company devoted to media.
    Yeah, that's what any well run white house would do...

    So was this after NBC and the New York Times declared war on the Bush administration and its efforts in Iraq based on a BI-PARTISAN decision to go in?

    I am fascinated by the lack of coherent arguments from the Bush and Conservative haters when their efforts to attack a news organization for purely hyper partisan political purposes are exposed for being just that.

    Again, there is only ONE reason to engage in such partisan hyperbole; and that is because this administration and their Librul allies are attempting to KEEP the truth and the facts from the American people.

    The TRUTH is that any open and HONEST debate about healthcare will end up losing them support of their partisan agenda to force Universal Healthcare down our throats in an effort to create a permanent dependent constituency.

    There are no FACTS to support this administrations hyperbolic rhetoric, lies and distortions and attempts to demagogue their political opponents.

    Disgusting & dangerous for a political operative...Fox News.....to hide behind the disguise of a real news network. I think this needs to be pursued in federal court.

    I fail to see how that's so different from what Fox News is doing. Have you seen some of the stuff that Glenn Beck & Sean Hannity have been saying about the Obama Administration? I realize that they are political commentary shows, but the Obama Administration is attacking Fox News in general, not only the news shows. In fact, their cross-hairs are probably more on those two (and perhaps O'Reilly) than anyone else at Fox News.

    Lord knows we cannot escape the Lib media for now... and I do listen to them (with a barf bag), but how many on the left have the intellectual curiosity to listen to FOX, Rush, Hannity, Levin or anyone right leaning?

    From what I've read over the past few years here and elsewhere... that tolerance and intellectual curiosity exists in microscopic doses.

    That's how we get third rate windbags elected.

    .
    To be honest, every now and then when flipping past Fox I will stop if it's on O'Reilly, Hannity or Beck. It interests me to see the other side of an issue.

    Ah, but to the extent that is true (it wasn't quite the same thing; to my knowledge, the Bush White House never actually snubbed NBC, much as they complained, and most criticisms of the NYT had to do with publishing leaked classified info), the converse also applies -- many attacking Fox News NOW were just as rabid in their defense of those other news outlets.

    So yeah, it's entirely about point of view, not principle, however you slice it.

    Instead, you will see me illustrating with evidence their obvious bias and attempts to water down bad news for their "Messiah."
    I get my news from a variety of sources as well and I love nothing more than to read an OpEd from someone I don't agree with. It helps me to either confirm or question and further expand my own opinions. If all I ever did was read news I agree with, I think my intellect would stagnate and eventually rot. I'm the girl who will pick up a book by Ann Coulter or Micheal Moore and find something interesting in each one.

    How could they possibly have their crosshairs on O'Reilly when O'Reilly has been more fair to them than most of the rest of the network?

    embed vid from quote: YouTube - Fox edits Duckworth comment then calls her a liar.
    Garbage... she said exactly what Wallace says she did. She said that it's not out yet which is a total lie.
