"Truce" Between White House and Fox News?

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

I hope it's not true. I have been enjoying this so-called war between Fox news and the White House.
FishbowlDC scoops that Fox News SVP Michael Clemente met with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs this morning and the two reached what some are calling a "truce" in the ongoing and very public war of words between the Obama administration and the news network.
Maybe the White House has finally realized that their clumsy attempt to take on Fox News has backfired. It has only resulted in increased publicity for FNC and higher ratings for a channel which was already beating it's competition hands down.

It's so funny that the White House was calling Fox news "biased" yet they didn't ever let out so much as a whimper about MSNBC, which is the most biased news channel of all and which makes Fox News look like a picnic by comparison.

Much more than ever we need news media that can keep the politicians honest and responsible. Obama and company have told so many lies about their policies, yet most of the MSM gives them a free pass. There is only Fox News and a very few print outlets, plus talk radio out there to try to apply journalistic standards to an administration that tries to bully and intimidate anyone who dares to disagree with them and tell the truth.

This is all about politics and the fact that Obama is too thin skinned to take any legitimate criticism. With CNN and MSNBC, plus the broadcast networks in their hip pocket, I guess that the White House believed that FNC would be an easy target. Oh how they were wrong. Score it Fox News 1, White House 0.
