    If calling BS was all they did, there would be nothing wrong with. Krewe Obama is going way past just calling BS. They are telling the rest of the media, "don't question us, or we'll come after you too". The MSM, as a whole should be ashamed for sitting back and allowing it to happen, especially after the decades of them insisting they are the gaurdians of liberty.

    Saying that a news organization is lying and censoring them are two different things.

    Obama has the right to defend himself. Fox has the right to lie about him too (and they are really exercising that right).

    He's taking it rather beyond merely "defending himself."

    When the government tries to intimmidate a news org, it's a violation of the 1st Amendment. Period.

    Obama has the right to defend himself. Fox has the right to lie about him too (and they are really exercising that right).

    Sure, he has the right to rebut their reports, but he can't use intimidation to do so. Especially when FNC isn't lieing. Can you show us any report that FNC did about PBO that is a lie? Can't wait to see it, so far everyone else has failed to present an example of such.

    It is as if the sitting president does not have the same rights as everyone else. I keep thinking of our PM's - the number of news outlets they have had a "go" at over the years is unreal.

    Our news outlets are so used to it that they treat it as fun.

    Mind you the one they take a swipe at most often is the government owned ABC - which the ABC simply points out means it must be doing it's job if it is upsetting the government

    Then, apparently, Fox News is doing its job, yes?

    A very immature Nixonlike move here. This whiner adminstration does have real problems to solve does it not? What a waste of time and another attempt at distraction.

    They have failed to take their responsibilities seriously yet again.
    Thank you

    I respect the the ability to make quick strong decisions and stoicly accept the consequences and whatever criticism that accompanies them.

    It is unfortunate we dont have any of that anymore.

    The whitehouse should be above rolling in the mud on the playground.
    They should have quite a lot on their plate and this is not a priority.


    This administration is a disgrace to the office.
    Thank you

    Because the government's hands should be tied. If false, they can present evidence to the contrary.

    Fox is not owned by the government - it is owned by Murdoch who has his own world agenda
