So, trust me when I tell you "the news of Obama's demise at the hands of Fox has been greatly exaggerated".

    If that were true, it makes him look like even more of a crybaby toddler for throwing such a tantrum about them, doesn't it?

    Yes there was a time when somebody did something like that they were, by order from Karl Rove, to be black balled from what ever industry they worked for. Then labled then as "Appeasers". Bush did that.

    Thanks goodness are current leaders are sane people that actually care for their country and it's citizens and not just the serveing needs of their political party.

    If FOX is such a fringe network, why is the administration even bothering to take notice of it?

    Would it be clearer if I seperated every word into it's own sentence?

    The other thing that the WH has done is inadvertantly increased the viewership of FOX.

    While I will defend FOX to make an assss out of themselves, I would hope the administraition would be above all of that.

    Just my 2 cents

    .
    Explain the "blunder". I hear pundits saying it but no one has shown the harm suffered by Obama. I doubt if any of the 65 million people who voted for Obama thought that Fox was a legitimate news organization in the first place. So Obama didn't tell us anything we didn't already know.

    Fox viewership is an inexact science at best but if more people are indeed watching Fox they will reach the same conclusion as the Whitehouse reached. Fox may have more viewers now but far less credibility.

    The country is divided but's that's not the result of fox news. In point of fact fox news is a result of the cultural division we now see in this country.

    Because other lazy, morons in the media will simply pick up on a Fox fallacy and turn it into real news story through repetition. Then the WH has to spend precious time debunking silliness such as "death panels" and "euthanasia" instead of debating true health care reform.
