    CNN presses White House adviser about Fox: why not MSNBC?

    Z on TV: Another bad moment for White House in war on Fox - Sun critic David Zurawik writes about the business, culture and craziness of television - baltimoresun.com

    Here, Campbell Brown asks Valerie Jarrett about the White House war against Fox News. It gets amusing when Jarrett starts backpedaling as soon as Brown asks about MSNBC.

    Especially hilarious is a White House adviser talking about "speaking truth to power." I guess the Permanent Campaign continues.

    Funny, you must have seen a different clip, a fantasy clip maybe? In the one I saw, Jarrett dismisses MSNBC because they have not been concocting lies and trying to influence policy dishonestly, like Fox has.

    Yeah. We'll see what everyone thinks about that.

    Funny? Yes, but can you, unlike the rest of the Fox OCD cult, provide us with some examples of concoted lies and influencing policy dishonesty? Or, like the rest of the Fox OCD crowd, do you have some stuff from one of the Fox pundits or PM show hosts to post? So far all I can find at DP are folks wanting to be taken seriously, yet pointing to what O'Rielly or Hannity or Beck said, as THEY were Fox News. Aside from that, good attempt at trying to explain the hypocrisy Jarrett enjoys wallowing in. It was not effective, but good TRY. I suspect that YOU are concocting lies and attempting to influence others to your ideological POV and that you likely CAN'T produce much that "Fox News" has done that fits your screed

    I don't think personal opinions about either fox or msnbc really matter. I believe what matters is the presidency of the united states of america is singling out a news agancy in an effort to exert control over the kind of stories it airs.

    I'm sure already understand that anything that a Liberal doesn't agree with is a lie by default.

    I don't think PBO is trying influence the stories that FNC runs. I'm sure he knows he can't do that, but he is trying to influence all the other news orgs. Now, that, he can do.

    Marginalize fox. That makes sense from the white house viewpoint.
