    I don't know the reason why, but it wasn't a good choice. I think that despite the obvious bias of Fox News, Obama should have just let this one go.

    Just by the title, it was more sinister than that.

    They tried to marginalize FOXNEWS. When a band of hatchetmen start trying to tell the nation what is a news network and what isn't is... they aren't throwing a bone, they're trying to eliminate the competition and control the entire message with their puppet networks.

    They stepped over the "bone" line by a mile.

    They should have tried to exterminate Faux News.

    You say that like it would be a bad thing to eliminate Faux News.

    A news channel is a media outlet that reports the facts. Fox News fails by any standard.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I think that, by making (by their own admission) the vast majority of their program opinion rather than news, they've done a fine job of that all on their own.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    No thanks, I'll just stick to reading my news in articles than actually claim to be news, so that when I catch the author lying they can't hide behind the flag of "opinion" while at the same time portraying themselves as a rare beacon of "truth."
