    Either way you cut it, the White House should not be in the business of legitimizing or devaluing press outlets with this petty war they've started. Especially when anyone with half a brain recognizes that their gripe is with FOX's commentators who aren't "journalists" to start with.
    *scratches head* the WH started the war? Oh come on when ballon boy isn't on it is the obama bashing network.

    No. Do you assume everything I say must be an argument with you?

    Oh, the poor little White House. Someone needs to speak up for the powerless victim here; you're right.

    No, not even close to the same. It is a bad analogy.

    Any talk of it having to give an interview to any particular organization because doing otherwise would violate that organization's first amendment is ridiculous and shows a little naivite on your part regarding government-media relations.
    OK, you may think that. But history shows a different story.

    Bull**** and you know this Jallman. We had 20-30 pages of people arguing that it needed to be done for the safety of the Presidents/Prime Minister during that America's gathering they had in Quebec a few years ago because of the radical left. I even remember TOT going on for ages about how it wasn't a violation because they could still exercise their freedom of speech just in a different place. I'll go look in the archives for it.
    OK if your clearest recollection is TOT....I rest my case.

    That kind of solidifies my point. It wasn't a problem then. It is one now.
    Not really. It's the White House continually making this a huge conflict. I don't recall the Bush Administration creating all this controversy over what interviews it had and didn't have. It's not like it tried to discredit a news outlet while denying the interviews.


    I think I should have phrased that differently. Considering the government is run by the people I wouldn't see why it wouldn't have a right to free speech as much as the people do at least in regards to whom it gives interviews to and who it doesn't.
    Umm, because it is employed by the people. I don't have totally free speech when I am at work. And the government is at work for the people and is continually accountable to the people. And the numbers show that a significant enough portion of "the people" choose Fox News as their media through which they get their accountings of the government's actions.

    Plus, I just think all this energy is being spent on this petty childishness by the White House when we be better served by spending it on, I dunno, the health care debate and maybe the economy. Foreign relations. Fixing DADT. Maybe some education reform. Just anything but this silliness.

    Anything to back that up or is that just opinion? Do you watch Fox News to have an informed opinion? If so and you hate it so badly, why do you watch it at all?

    Why would you assume that my own simple question constituted an argument?

    You can have an automated response too. If I believed in a god I would pray for the day I wouldn't have to read your stupid automatic anti-Libertarian crap. You spew your hate well more than libertarians spew their rhetoric.
