    If they don't stand up to this, what happens the first time they criticize Obama or support a rival Democrat? Are they thrown to the dungeon with Fox?

    And what if conservatives are in charge of everything by 2012 (which is looking more likely by the minute), do they ALL get cast into that dungeon since it will then have precedent?

    This was a career(s) decision, first and foremost.

    Yup.....
    ....and they were forced to that position, in order to save any credibility....
    I truly do think Obama is the living example of the 'Peter Principle'....
    ....Or are his Dem handlers that obtuse?....

    I'm glad that the media didn't get sucked into the selective outrage the Obama administration has shown. Singling out Fox for problems that pervade the media was wrong, and had the other stations stood with Obama they would have been quite hypocritical.

    My hyperbole expressed your sentiments taken to thier logical conclusion.
    Hyperbolic as usual. They attempted to exclude Fox from an interview, Fox was not censored.

    Anyway, the outcome doesn't really bother me either. I just think that Fox is so degenerate as a "news" network that I wouldn't shed a tear if Obama succeeded.

    Looks like you don't support the 1st Amendment.

    I'm sure that's what Keith Olberman told you to say.

    Fox News is agenda driven, not journalisticly sound (if that is even a word ) The way they treated Ron Paul during the election, and then completely pulled a 360, supporting a multitude of his ideas now that Obama is in office only exponentiates their lack of value.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    The First Amendment was not infringed upon. The White House has the right to refuse any news agency. It lost this battle because the five main media networks banded together and threatened to not report at all.

    Nice try though.

    I'm definitely not a fan of Fox. But I don't believe it proper for the government to ban certain media outlets just because they won't be friendly with them. I don't necessarily think the press should be "friendly" with the government. The press needs to aggressively question the government and report their findings to the People so we can better control the government. It doesn't necessarily work that way now, but that's what I believe should be the standard. As such, I don't think it proper for the government to deny access of a news agency due to political reasons. It highlights why exactly we need a free press.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
