    White House Calls Out Fox By Name For Lying

    White House Calls Out Fox By Name For Lying
    Rachel Slajda | September 30, 2009, 3:31PM

    "Last night Fox News continued its disregard for the facts," the post begins, "in an attempt to smear the Administration's efforts to win the Olympics for the United States."

    The author, White House online programs director Jesse Lee, goes on to point out several quotes from Glenn Beck, which it says are lies, and the truth behind them. ("Rhetoric: Beck said Vancouver lost $1 billion when it 'had the Olympics.' ... Reality: Vancouver's Olympics Will Not Take Place Until 2010.")

    Did the WH make a mistake? Were they right to call bs on the crap that Beck's been spewing?

    The White House probably should've just let it slide. I could understand if it was about health care and the lies were actually gaining traction, but this is not even about an important issue. Who cares if Glenn Beck lies about the Olympics? Feeding the trolls is usually a bad idea.

    I am not sure what they are hoping to gain by this? Probably just will get a rise out of Fox and Fox viewers, which will probably keep it in the press (and for a much larger audience) for much longer than anyone will remember what Beck had to say on the subject.

    So the White Kindergarten called out Fox. Surprising. BTW, when will they change the name of that racist building called the White House? I mean really, maybe White Crib?

    It was kinda obvious that beck meant toronto(???), and equally obvious that that wasn't the point he was making at the time.

    either way, Of all things to fight FOX on...why this? Why not say...the lies about Acorn? or Fox's lies about Van Jones? Those were all lies...right? right? or maybe not...?

    Another socialist (from White House) making a joke of themselves.. arguing BS, because they can't argue the substance.. silly libs.

    I even get it when arguing with the office idiot "ohh.. ohh.. your wrong!!! That book wasn't published until xxx".. ...well ****e.. then I guess my whole argument is is moot and my point failed because I mis-quote the year of a specific reference... they can't argue the facts so they argue the letter "f", I'm really growing weary of their collective tripe!

    No. Fox needs to be put in its place by every credible authority anywhere.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
