Obama snubs Fox News

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

I would have expected no less from Obama. He says that he wants an open dialogue but actually the opposite is true. He will be appearing on NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN interview shows this coming Sunday. What a love fest those shows will be given their liberal bias. And then to make matters worse, Obama will be appearing on David Letterman's late night talk show next week so that Letterman can kiss his ass.

The one network that Obama won't be appearing on of course is Fox. And the reason for that is obvious. He might actually get a hard hitting question on Fox. So why go there when you know that you will only get softballs thrown at you from the liberal broadcast networks and CNN? The pattern is clear. Obama doesn't want to be made accountable for his policies, so he stays away from the one network that might actually have the temerity to hold his feet to the fire.

I doubt if the American people will be fooled by this sleazy tactic. And besides, it seems that every time Obama shows his face on television his numbers go down. So fine. Let him go on those networks. In spite of his snub, the Fox News Network will continue it's dominant ratings, getting more viewers than it's competitors do combined. I know that this reality just kills the left, but it just makes me laugh.

Most Americans will be preoccupied by pro football on Sunday anyway. Obama will flail away on the broadcast networks and CNN. Meanwhile, I'll be having a backyard barbecue, drinking beer, and watching football. It doesn't get any better than that.

It will interesting to see how pathetic will be the ratings for those shows that will be carrying Obama. I am no expert on ratings, but I bet that football will beat out Obama hands down. And that's the way it should be. Football will beat Obama's lies and exaggerations and pandering any day of the week.

We have Fox News Channel, talk radio, and a very few newspapers such as the Washington Times and the Wall Street Journal editorial page on one side trying to show some objectivity. On the other side are broadcasters ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC, CNN, and PBS and NPR. Then throw in most newspapers including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the LA Times. It's not a very level playing field is it? Yet somehow, in spite of the unfair advantage Obama gets from the liberal media, the American public still by and large gets it. Long live Fox News Channel and talk radio!
