    LOL. I caught that. FOX News DOES have a line called "Some people say", followed by a talking point, without dropping a real name as to who said it. LOL.

    To me, FOX News is a mixed bag. Yes, it is very Conservative leaning, and in being so, it is going to slant the news towards the right. On the other end of the spectrum is MSNBC, which slants news towards the left. Why do they do that? To reach their target audience, of course. It is all about marketing.

    Rupert Murdoch started FOX News, and made the slant very real. However, Murdoch is not really a Conservative. Here in Houston, he bought out the Houston Post, and turned it into a Liberal leaning paper. It's all about money, targeting a specific audience, and getting ad subscriptions to make that money. Murdoch was a marketing genius, not a true news man. And this is why we must look carefully at our sources, and look at each story in the news from both sides of the spectrum. On any particular story, if you watch both FOX News and MSNBC versions, you will be closer to the REAL story than someone who only watches one of those networks. And, of course, the REAL story is usually somewhere in the middle, between what those 2 networks are parroting.

    I don't recall Obama or the white house pointing out any "lies" that Fox News has stated about him or his administration... Yet they attack.

    I only recall president Bush and his administration singling out one media outlet during their 8 years, and it was the NY Times. Their criticism was always concerning specific stories, never a generalization. Hell, Bush didn't even go after CBS after their phony National Guard story.


    For too long, Democrats have allowed the lies to go unchecked and paid the price (John Kerry for one).
    What Fox News lies were those?

    Could you post some examples please?

    Its time that FoxNews and the right-wing smear machine get called out when they post the outright lies that they do.
    Again, could you post some examples of these Fox News lies?

    Post a link to some of those, would you?

    I certainly hope they are credible too.

    Did you expect that to actually be backed up?

    They never do... They always make claims they can't back up.

    Re: White House Escalates War of Words With Fox News

    Bill O'Reilly made this the subject of his Talking Points Memo to open his show:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBJ01XV-EKo"]YouTube - Bill O'Reilly Reacts To Anita Dunn's Fox News Slam[/ame]

    He nailed it when he named all of those on Fox who aren't conservatives, and when he pointed out that their "Hard news" coverage is fair and balanced.

    Damn, I missed this last night and gotta head off to work.

    The OP quote is awesome! I absolutely abhor Obama, but the white house nailed it. Fox news is not news at all, it is entertainment.

    30 second google search yields all kinds of "EVIDENCE" for you kool-aid drinkers.

    O'Reilly's argument is that "commentary" is news. Umm... nice.

    My opinion is "news" too - right?

    I didn't see O'Reilly say that at all. He said that Fox's hard news programs are fair to the Obama administration and that he has been fair. I think he is correct on both counts. He also named other programs that he felt were fair, including Shepard Smith and Greta Van Sustren. He is correct.

    The only two programs that Obama has a real beef with are Beck and Hannity. All the rest of Fox's programs are pretty fair and balanced.

    Since we are talking about hard news, post some quotes with links of Fox hard news programs with lies in them.

    Should be easy according to you.
