    Sometimes the truth hurts.

    Fact is....FauxNews is basically right-wing radio on TV. Their line-up is comprised of the same wacko nutjobs that you can listen to on any right-wing radio.

    Lacking credibility? "Some people say" is FauxNews

    What Obama and his advisor said are accurate, and the White House attacks on Fox are smart. Now Fox will air these kinds of statements 24/7 and the far right can be safely distracted from the health care debate and the economy.

    Well played.

    Or they will be seen as the only people brave enough to stand up to the Democrats and their unwillingness to listen to people who view the station seen by more Americans than the others. Once you pit the television station against the administration (especially one as popular as Fox News), you paint its audience in much the same way. It rallies them to one focal point and may actually convert more people against the administration's agenda, when simply put, they elevated one station's status far more disproportionately to what they should have. Their status before hand was nowhere near as powerful as when the Obama administration and the Democrats prior to the election reacted to them so strongly.

    That is one heck of a public relations gamble.

    You are entitled to your opinion. However, I listen to them, among others. Neither of our opinions matter. What matters is the president of the united states is trying to muzzle a major news network for partisan political gain. Government 101 = not good at all. In the end that's all that matters.

    I thought that was the whole point of the "truther" movement.

    Mr. Jones signed a statement for 911Truth.org in 2004 demanding an investigation into what the Bush Administration may have done that “deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.”

    Well played Obama. Well played.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    How is calling them out for their deceitful propoganda "muzzling" them?

    Nobody is trying to take them off the air...but they shouldn't be free to air their lies without being called on it.

    The last time we saw an administration and the POTUS personally go after a news outlet, it was Nixon and the New York Times.

    Too bad Nixon is not around to ask, "How did that work out for you?"

    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.

    Then why does he continue to run the New York Post at a loss each year?
