    Wait -- you're saying that only government-owned news media has the job of going after the government?

    Oh so the White House should just be complacent with what ever accusations are being tossed around?

    They should focus on the business of running the United States Goverment. This issue has no place in that.
    Thank you

    A part of that is publicity like it or not.

    Responding to criticism is pure childishness on the part of the administration.
    Thank you

    Murdoch's own world agenda has little to do with politics, and everything to do with money. He created FOX News because he saw a niche he could fill. Here in Houston, Murdoch bought out the Houston Post and turned it into a Liberal paper. Why? Because he saw a niche he could fill and make money. Murdoch made his money, and then sold the paper, which was later bought by the Houston Chronicle and shut down.

    Murdoch is a money maker. Nothing more, nothing less. If he saw a chance to make more money, he would have made FOX News a Liberal news channel.

    A large portion of Fox News is its radio hosts. As a result, what Obama says is not really wrong.

    The problem is that it is going to backfire for his administration by continuing to attack it. When Beck parades around with the 'hot line', and Fox News spends its time promoting this new-found "enemy of the White House" label, where on earth is the benefit for the Obama administration?

    Hardly - they just have to do it harder and more transparently is all

    Bit like the old saying "A woman has to work twice as hard to be considered half as good as a man - fortunately this is not difficult"

    But Murdoch - no matter what his leanings (and he does lean so far right he is horizontal) loves the bottom line - bet on him to promote that which brings in the money

    Actually Murdoch leans so far right he is willing to lose money to promote a right wing agenda. Case in point the New York Post where News Corp loses 73 million a year. Also News Corp is about 2 billion in the hole.
