    I don't cling to any party philosophy so I find the current actions of the Obama admin as regards this topic not only idiotic but very childish too. As are the defenses of this action I see in evidence at DP and elsewhere. Grown adults throwing away any sense of rational discourse on such an obvious issue, because well you know, Obama is their guy and it is OK when it is their guy. Then sprinkle some blather about Bush into the mix and maybe rant a bit about boogie man Limbaugh too.

    And the kazoo band played on............

    Yes but is it really a lie if it just a delusion they actually believe?

    Once they buy into it they are emotionally invested in believing the lies and can no longer be trusted to objectively examine the issues. You can see the exampes quite often. A mountain of evidence becomes vapor once the blinders are firmly in place.

    Oh please. Barack Obama can't do anything. In fact, he's making his problem worse. That's why it was a miserable public relations decision on his administration's part to begin with.

    The other thing that amuses me is some liberal Obama fans are claiming it was apart of some mastermind plan to distract the critics while they push forward their agenda. Obama is now a master escape artist.

    An example of the tinted shades. She got called on her inconsistencies and that was that.

    There have been several big stories this year that we never would have known about if it wasn't for FoxNews. Isn't that what's important? Sorry that the Obama bashing bothers people but the news media is not about making you feel good about your president, it's about letting you know what your leaders are up to. Good or bad.

    Stories which the Obama administration was able to rely upon the "other" news stations to ignore and fail to report, which is of course a failure of their journalistic integrity. Until they got so widely discussed and known about that the so called "real" news sources had to say aw shucks and report those stories they really just would not have liked to due to political ideaology.

    It is my experience that a great many who suffer with Fox OCD Syndrome are really just *mad* that sources like Fox exist out there. It really is very frustrating when people keep track of the news and are able to debunk false claims and highlight journalistic *fail* when one is in the midst of a screed lacking truth, substance or a point based in ideology rather than fact. "They" would much rather there was no dissenting voice in the mainstream media at all and that is what at the end of the day really tells you about the integrity of much of the hullabaloo about Fox News OCD sufferers here and elsewhere.

    Your answer makes the assumption that Fox is a news agency. The entire thrust of the administration's charge is that they are primarily a political tool. So the White House is not trying to influence Fox, they are exposing them.

    The fact of the matter is that by anything but an internet loon's ideologically tinted spectacles, Fox News is in fact a 24 hour news service that exist in the *REAL* world. Ranting that this is not the case and gutter snipping at others comments and statements, while hiding behind your meek "well documented" but never linked to or sourced examples, is a intellectually dishonest and cowardly approach to debate. Meaning you just are not good at it, mostly because you have no idea how to engage in it.

    So tell us is there such a thing as a real news agency? CNN do it for you?

    I'm amazed and embarrassed for ANYONE who hangs their hat on ANYTHING Jarrett says!

    This hack is the consummate radical, socialist mouthpiece, and I'm talking in the entire known universe.. what'a piece of work this t**t is!

    It was plain ridiculous judgment, from a man who claimed to be stellar in that dept.
