    Default The White House's Feud with Fox News: Fair or Foul?

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_obama_fox_news

    What do you guys think? On the one hand, it seems like the next logical step in divisionist politics, and likely would have happened to MSNBC if McCain had won, and it's not against the law for the President to have an opinion. On the other hand, it seems kind of distasteful the way it is being discussed and presented by a group (the White House) which is in power to basically present Fox News as somehow more biased than MSNBC.

    Personally, I watch CNN, but I was wondering what some of you thought. Obviously I can guess at what a few of you will say.

    I look at CNN's website because you find what you are looking for quickly and can get a lot of information in a few minutes. But the information I trust most is NPR - they aren't beholden to anybody because they don't rely on corporate money (advertising).

    At least CNN attempts to be unbiased...Fox news is not news at all.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I think it is silly for the president to even address an issue like this. If he's mad at Fox for being biased against him, then he ought to get mad at MSNBC for being biased, too. He is our president and the most powerful figure in the world, petty beefs about news stations should be below him. We all know that both are biased in opposite directions, I think what he is really mad about is that more people watch Fox News. This should signal him to try and be more conservative, if he thinks it is such an important issue. Instead, he wants to just bash them. By doing so, he is driving the nails into his own coffin because of the fact that more people watch it. Doesn't sound to me like his "team of strategists" have thought this one out too well.

    Is there actual news on that channel? I thought it was all opinion/commentary.

    Regardless of whether certain news organizations are biased, I think it's a bad idea for a President with a falling approval rating to declare war on a major news org. Bush and company smacked back at the lefty media a few times, but that didn't work out so well for them either.

    If anyone else can make sense of this please provide commentary.

    I re-read this 4 times including out loud and it never resembled anything I've ever read. Do you have a virus, ugly?

    I think it's a bad idea for any president, these news channels are on 24/7 and have a lot more control over what message gets out than the president does.
