He's taking it rather beyond merely "defending himself."
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.

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.
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
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.
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.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.
