White House fails to exclude Fox News from Czar interview

If anyone out there voted from O-man and is not appalled at the ‘war’ on Fox News, you should be. Even f you dont watch the news station, thats fine, dont watch it, you dont have to, but I hope for educating yourself you do watch it as well as all the other news stations out there including BBC.

Because this is plain and simple, it really is attacking the first amendment, its freedom of speech. Yo umight not like what the other side has to say, but they have the right to say it….or dont make a big hoopla over someone yelling “you lie” during a speech.

The Obama administration on Thursday tried to make “pay czar” Kenneth Feinberg available for interviews to every member of the White House pool except Fox News. The pool is the five-network rotation that for decades has shared the costs and duties of daily coverage of the presidency.

But the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV networks consulted and decided that none of their reporters would interview Feinberg unless Fox News was included.

Good!

Media analysts cheered the decision to boycott the Feinberg interview unless Fox News was included, saying the administration’s gambit was taking its feud with Fox News too far. President Obama has already declined to go on “Fox News Sunday,” even while appearing on the other Sunday shows.
