    He's trying to deny white house access as a way to punish fox news reporters.

    From their perspective. Having the president of the united states controling the media isn't what we do in america.....at least not until now.

    I'd say their ability to break the acorn scandal, van jone's past statements and now annita dunn's speach to high school kids would seem to indicate they are bringing news to the public they would otherwise be denied. That's important if you believe we should have a free press. You do believe we should have a free press, don't you?

    I do not think they are attempting to control the media. I think they are attempting to control their image. Fox news is still free to do what ever they want to do.

    How does refusing to make administration official available for interviews do that? Doesnt putting these official on FNC make it LESS likely that FNC will be able to spread disinformation by being there to refute erroneous assertions?

    Seems to me that if to 'halt disinformation' were the true goal, FNC would be -flooded- with The Obama's people.
