    Personally....I'd like to see some Exec Br. muscle flexed against Fox News....Just to get in their face a bit.
    What's Obama got to lose?.....The GOP suddenly gonna try to block his legislation?...They not gonna vote with the Dems?...They gonna bad mouth Obama??
    Give me a break!

    This is turning bad quickly for the WH. I heard last night on CNN a discussion surrounding the flap here, and openly starting to opine if it were put out there as a distraction for all of the things going sour in the WH. I even heard at one point the person respond in the conversation that this is what budding dictators do early in their rise to oppressive power, attack non compliant media sources.

    Sad to see what has happened to this country in such a short span of time from a President that preached in his campaign how it was time to put away divisive politics of the past.....Just another lie from Barry.

    Yes sir! SOME folks are actually waking up, even in the liberal media! I must say a little slow, but none the less Some are indeed aware of the threats being perpetrated against Americans and the Constitution..And the willingness of this Administration to do what ever it takes to bring about fundamental SOCIALISM!

    Fox = propaganda, and Foxies like it just like that.
    That's why the administration and house democrats don't dispute what Fox has presented concerning the czars. They only hurl insults, which is the same thing as saying "guilty as charged".

    The reason Tapper isn't all over it, is because he works for a network that isn't interested in things that tarnish the image of our all mighty Messiah.

    That is correct; Van Jones, et al., are gone; ACORN is defunded, etc., etc.

    Look, here's the thing.

    If the White House truly believes that Fox lies and only spreads propaganda, then what would be better than going TO Fox, a fistful of facts in hand, and obliterating them on their own airwaves? What could be more devastating to Fox than that?

    If they're afraid of "editing" (which I'm sure they'd cite as a reason not to do it), then make the condition that it be live and unedited. If Fox refuses, then the blame is on them.

    This scorched Earth campaign simply reeks of the Chicago Way of not just defeating enemies, but destroying them and salting the Earth. I know some of you want to see the White House use its might to plow under those who have a message you don't want to hear, but to Americans who cherish robust debate, such a thing should be anathema.

    I think even the Libbos know the answer to that question

    Tapper made one of the dumbest arguments ever uttered on national TV. Just because thousands of people work at Fox; how does that prove that Fox is not biased ??? Thousands of people work at the DNC and the RNC; does that mean those organizations are not biased. This is ridiculous. This weak defense demonstrates that Fox is probably guilty as charged.

    The bill to defund ACORN has not been signed into law because of claims that it is an unconstitutional Bill of Attainder. Indeed Democrats drafted this defective bill knowing that it would never take effect. And many conservatives went for the head-fake. Fox has spent a lot of resources without much results. Its just another case of "Much Ado About Nothing".

    The WH gains nothing from debating Fox because Obama voters do not watch Fox for news. We only watch it for entertainment like we watch Saturday Night Live and the Coulbert Report. The people who watch Fox for news are conservatives who the WH is not trying to reach.

    Obama has not tried to "destroy" Fox. He is merely verbalizing a notion that most of us have already realized but did not want to say. So far, no one has come up with evidence to rebut the WH's allegation.
